Nice post, Mike. It was my first time on the water with another tenkara guy, and we both enjoyed ourselves. I was able to watch Mike play one of the smallmouths he caught and can report that he brought it in neatly and smoothly. For me, I could not seem to get the skunk out, but as they say, the worst day fishing is better than...etc. And it was actually a good day. After we left Sugar Creek, where we fished, Mike showed me a couple of other interesting nearby spots for future fishing. All in all, a mighty fine day. But I sure would have liked to see him hook one of those gars, though.
