    Default BACK TO THE BASICS - Neil- Aug 13, 2012


    Catching fish with a rod and line is basically quite a simple task, but one must first secure the basic equipment, which is really quite rudimentary. A shaft 8 to 10 feet should be adequate for most angling, but longer shafts may be necessary when angling on larger streams. The shaft should not be too supple or too stiff. The base should fit comfortably in the hand being neither too thick nor too thin. The angler may wish to make his own shaft or one may be purchased from a seller of angling paraphernalia.

    Good to see that Deanna is out and about with her Tenkara rod. Hopefully it will tide her over until she can get back to using her conventional fly angling gear, but also stay within reach for those times when she just wants to keep it simple.

    The fish are always right.
