    Default WHY OVER MY HEAD? - Panfish - Apr 7, 2014

    WHY OVER MY HEAD?
    It was a day that called me to head for a pond. We had more rain again and it was too wet to drive into ponds. So I headed out to a pond near the University. By going there I didn't have to worry about getting stuck.
    I started out with a 5 weight graphite and the Tenkara rod. I had tied a few flies on jig heads and wanted to try them with the Tenkara rod. I knew they would go deeper, but I want to know if the Tenkara rod will work that way.

    WOW! Of all things, I suppose the next time a golf ball hits your fly rod you should probably call it a day.
    Where you go is less important than how you take the steps.

    Ha! Not many people can claim that has happened to them! And that is why golfing and fishing just don't mix!
    You stopped using it...is the Tenkara rod OK?

    Yes h rod is functional. Got the piece to replace the part that was broken. The golfer paid me for it and is still apologizing for it happening.

    Now that is a fishing story that no other can say happened to them! Enjoyed the story and it was good to hear everything worked out for you in the end.

    Why is there so much interest in Tenkara rods? It sound like fishing with the old cane pole I used as a kid.
    Tie the line by my hand and roll the line at the tip and unwind more line to fish deeper..
