From a potential newbie
How do you tie a hackle to make it face forward? Where do you tie it off?
First: Here in most of New England our small freestone woodland streams are lined with woodland and not open plains. I would think that avoiding backcasts would be great but an 11 foot rod might buy the problem right back. I'm looking for advice.
Secondly: why are all the little videos of Tenaka fishing always showing micro-size fish?
I've not seen one over ten or eleven inches.
Also: is Tenkara fishing useable for streamers, Muddlers and Wooly Buggers that I'm used to?
