Tenkara -- May 5, 2016

I visited a high mountain stream the other day. Run off hadn't started quite yet, although the water was up a little, yet the water was still clear.

The stream holds wild, native cutthroats, which are my favorite trout. Here's a video of a few of the fish I took. No music, only sounds of the rushing water. Arrows show the drift and ovals show the take.


  1. Hi Tom,

    Great as always! Thanks for posting.

    Quick question. Who makes the gloves and shirt/coat you were wearing. Been looking for some camo clothing.


    1. Hi David,

      The gloves are from Buff and the shirt is from Aqua Design.

  2. Hi Tom, the line winder today plus a couple of flies. Many thanks!

    Any idea what kind of hooks those are? I like the size of the eyes...given my aging eyes.
