Do you love big bluegill?
Just purchased a Fountainhead Tenkara Caddis pole and need help. I researched warm water Tenkara and found most information on the web is about trout.
Just wondering if anyone has information for bluegill fishing with Tenkara. Line types, flies, etc.
Kelly - Thanks.. I use the site for equipment purchases and find it a wealth of information for fixed line fishing. I use tenkara, keiryu , seiryu as well as micro technique when fishing. My poles run from 1.5 to 4.5 meters with the lighter at about 1 oz and the heavier running about 3.5 oz.
Back in the day we used to call these cane poles, lol.
Same principle but the japanese poles just a bit lighter and able to telescope down to about 12 - 14 inches. Can't do that with a cane pole. Short poles with #20 or less hook and 2# test is deadly in the margins. Right now the only US company making short telescopic pole is South Bend. Pole currently runs about 5.00 USD for a 1.5 meter pole . Pair this with a either a #20 or less fly or hook and hold on . You're micro fishing for less then 10.00 USD.
Or I can make a cane pole for free. Cut it to any size I want. Plenty of bamboo around here.
Absolutely, One of my poles is the top section of a 10 foot BNM cane pole. I wrapped the handle for a more traditional look. Works great but does weight over 5 oz .
What you wrap the handle with?
