The folks at Tenple Fork Outfitters have decided to bring out their line of Tenkara style rods. I just received the first rod from the folks in Dallas. They will be doing a press release at the Fly Tackle Dealers Show in Reno, Nevada next week, so you are getting this news before the rest of the folks. I am going to be fishing this new rod over the weekend and doing some reviews over the next few weeks. Out of the package is feels great and will be a great Watauga and South Holston Tenkara rod.
Here it is in the package, check back on Monday to see the rod and how it performs.
Tomorrow I am headed out to test fish a new to me high mountain lake that has northern pike (30 inch minimum size) and bruiser largemouth (18 inch munimum). It is srping feed and has some serious lilly pad areas on the upper end of the lake. Got the bite leaders installed on the lines and big articulated flies are tuned and ready. Reports to follow!!!!
