Testing a Tenkara Fly Pattern... Oops!

Tied a Tenkara Fly in a reverse hackle Olive Body and White Hackle pattern. For ease of reference, calling it an Olive/White Tenkara Fly.

Tested it out a Sonic Pond and caught a Bass with it. Bite seemed slow, so headed to the Lower Pond at Bethany Lakes. Pond was clobbered with lots of green stuff but did see one nice Bass lurking in a clear spot.

Casted the Tenkara Fly, got the Bass’ attention, got a strike, and then broke off. Tenkara field test ended… oops! Should have tied two instead of only one. No worries, put the scaled down Foam Grasshopper on the line and went back to fishing.

Ended today’s round with eleven fish – one on the Tenkara Fly and ten on the Foam Grasshopper. Fun stuff… will get more Tenkara Flies tied for another round of “testing!
