I tenkara fish all the time, everywhere. Not sure why, but the simplicity appeals to me, hard to beat for dead drifts. I don't know that it is more effective than any other style but I like it.

New leech pattern (at least for me)

Been working on some warm water flies for smallies and I've hit on one that at least looks good to me.

Found this web searching for smallie flies. It is a fly tied for cutthroat created by a guide named Bob Triggs.
