Fly fishing from heaven

August 28, 2014

For the past few months, I have been hearing and seeing reviews for Tenkara fly fishing rods and had been hoping to give one a try. I enjoy the challenge of a new skill but I like to get all the help I can when learning it. So this past week I linked up with fly fishing guide and Tenkara instructor Pat Jaeger at Eastern Sierra Guide Service to have him show me the ropes.
Pat and I went out and threw some flies with some of his Tenkara setups on the Lower Owens River and I learned a few things about Tenkara fishing.

A bit of wind, a dip in temps, shorter days, a spot of color here and there, a lack of children during the week – could it mean that fall is just around the corner? But first, we have the last holiday weekend of summer, Labor Day and the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fair.
Fishing this week was on and off. Saw some nice stringers leaving the lake and some not so nice stringers. Anglers not catching fish can come on into the store and get some advice.

Daylight Savings Time ends Nov. 2, and autumn – or even winter – temperatures are likely to accompany it, so that gives residents a little more than two months to accomplish any summer goals they set for themselves this year.
