I’m from oklahoma. Been fishing tenkara for about 4 years now I think. Mostly fishing warm water for everything from micros up to smallmouth/black buffalo. Local trout are mostly stocked tailwaters with limited reproduction. I try to make at least 1 trip a year to somewhere with wild trout. This next spring will be the Gatlinburg area for sure and hopefully California, and hopefully white mountains in the summer and or utah in the fall, just depend on the wife and which of those she wants/we can afford to take. We have lot of travel wants lol!
My goal is to catch as many wild salmonids in their native habitat as possible. So far my only natives are greenback cutthroat and coastal rainbows. Hope to add brookies and Gila/apache this year, with goldens and utah cutthroat as a possibility too.
Ive never come across another tenkara Fisher, and only 1 or 2 that knew what it was. I have had the pleasure of introducing several people to it that I have met on the river and were curious.
I’ve been browsing the forum for a long time, but plan to be more active in the future
