Check out the website TenkaraBum.com.: The Edison Lake Expedition (and it really did take two hours to drive the last 25 miles during the snowmelt, which included at least two scenic stops to give thanks for still being alive) included a streamside Tenkara demonstration by the guides and a chance for us to do it. You now can reach that Alpha Class wild trout sitting behind the logjam! This does, however, raise a philosophical question: if an increased skill/difficulty level is inherent in flyfishing (at least over dunking bait and sometimes over open-faced spinning) and one of its attractions, should we embrace making it easier with major equipment advances, or reject some of them as a personal handicap? Or maybe rather than thinking about it, we should just go fishing....RAP

Keep trying new techniques is my approach... That includes different techniques such as Czech Nymphing for fast water and Spanish Nymphing for the slower moving water. Of course, you could just go fishing!!!!!!!!
