Tenkara is Not Limited to Small Trout, or Small Creeks

If you are a backpacker and don't yet know about Tenkara, learn about it, because it's one of the most progressive concepts in fly fishing, and you need to know what it is, and why it's important. Stay tuned for a full review (including some fun video I took with a GoPro helmet cam) at BackpackingLight.com soon.

In particular, don't pay too much attention to the rumors that Tenkara is limited to small streams and small fish.

This fat cutthroat was taken from the South Fork Flathead River near the terminus of the White River in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex.
