Recently I attended a Happier Hour Event put on by Orvis of Madison. The speaker was Matt Sment co-owner of Badger Tenkara. He covered all the basics of tenkara fishing in his presentation. Then he showed us all something that blew my mind! I can't wait to try this on a local pond or creek. It might even work when drift fishing with an ultralight rod and casting bubble. He says that to give streamer patterns a more erratic fleeing action just draw the letters of the alphabet with your rod tip. Genius!
It's a great idea that should work well as the water begins to cool. Anything that's gonna mean more caught fish is a plus in my book.
