Anyway, looking at my upcoming schedule, the first chance I'm going to have to escape Florida in search of trout appears like it will be April 21-23, so that's the plan... and praying to the weather gods to keep things calm that weekend.
It should be a good opportunity to really stretch the legs on the new Confluence rod from Three Rivers Tenkara I picked up the other week. It's a two-length zoom rod that I'd like to do a solid review of here at some point. (If you can't wait for that, Tom Davis did a "dry" review recently as well).
I've already taken it out retention pond fishing in the neighborhood a little bit and liked what I've seen so far. While fishing for bass and bluegill with a tenkara rod will not really show how it will perform in a true high-gradient tenkara envornment, I'm looking forward to testing my/it's casting mettle on some more technical pocket water and whatnot.
Nice thing about those little ponds in Florida, is they always have something in them that bite. Not necessarily fish.ReplyDelete
You're not kidding. Turtles, little gators, stuff is everywhere...Delete
I would hope that Colorado tied flies would work on those Bluegill and Bass. Now, for other things that bite, I am out of here. Good luck getting some April Trout fishing in..........ReplyDelete
We'll see Mel. Looking forward to giving them a go!Delete
A short stretch on local water is better than dreaming of time on far away trout water. Trust me.ReplyDelete
You're right. I still fish locally, I just have trout and cool, moving water imprinted on my soul.Delete
It's tough to spend too much time away.
It's like recharging the batteries.....everything runs better after time on the water. Thanks for bringing us along.ReplyDelete
Need to find my USB cord, stat!Delete
It's always fun to hear about your adventures when you get out trout fishing. It seems like such a long time ago. Owl said come on over and he'll show you some trout.ReplyDelete
I'm working on getting him on board for this trip. Owl's been a bit under the weather.Delete
Beautiful catches! Looks like a great day out...ReplyDelete
