|Life of Riley|
I set up the Tenkara Iwana with the orange stimulator (reasonable facsimile) and after a few practice casts, turned Roy loose. I hung close and gave him some pointers about holding the tip up so only the fly was touching the water, what a "dead drift" was and how to go about it. A little roll cast instruction. you know, stuff like that and what parts of the creek to find the fish.

This little bug landed on my arm and if any of you entomology experts out there can tell me what it is (so I don't have to look it up, lazy slug that I am) I'd appreciate knowing. Also note Roy (in the background) had a proper hold on the Tenkara rod with the line properly wrapped on the spool.
|Bug of some kind|
Now I have to decide where I'm going on Thursday. Brave the heat and fish for Shad on the American or take a drive up to the West Fork of the Carson River and fish Tenkara. Guess I'll have to let you know.
Till next time.
