Fly Fishing and Tenkara trip reports, videos, photography and art.
I started fly fishing in 2011. My wife signed me up for a free introduction to fly fishing at our local shop (Western Rivers Fly Fisher). That first year, I fished over 150 days. A few months later for my birthday my wife gave me a Tenkara outfit from Tenkara USA. Whenever I can, I fish pocket water on small mountain streams, usually with a Tenkara rod.
The original fly is tied with CDC. I find that EP provides just as delicate of a presentation but has the advantage that you aren't limited to high priced silicone floatant. CDC flies, no matter how well you manage them and dry them, always, always eventually sink. Which means I have to spend time switching out flies.
I've been planning this trip for years. This was a birthday trip designed to entertain a gaggle of kids and for the kid in me.
My first fascination with Dinosaur National Monument began in the 4th grade. I chose to do a presentation on Duchesne county because at its far eastern border lay Dinosaurland.
