Thanks Vince,

The camera is a 10 year old 3.2 megapixel Pentax but it is still good for these trips.  The grayling was a 12"er and the fly was a size 12-14 with lots of hackle on the parachute which the grayling seem to go for.  It was fun, but 2/3rds of the day is travelling and hiking to get onto the water then the return trip home.  Got to go to where they reside, right. Reminds me of what one of our former Oiler coaches when he said, "We can't win at home and we can't win on the road and I can't think of any other place for us to play."

Had another great day on Dismal , I'm not a Tenkara virgin anymore .  A 39 cm. grayling on a Tenkara fly that John tied for me, nice, and the rod handled it well. Ken had caught on a Tenkara fly Orange and Partridge, so I tried one and it worked , second cast...... We caught some new fish 25 cm to 39 cm. and some ESRD had caught last weekend. We fished water that Paul and I fished a few years back and then father up stream that was new to us , ESRD had fished last weekend. We also saw some fresh bear scat , but not the Butt it came from, good thing .Tested the bear bangers for Ken and Kurt.. Walked 7 KM about 4.5 on the creek and 2.5 in the hot sun , road warriors . Later we tried Rat creek  and it was not providing us any excitement as we arrived around 4:30 , Orange gunk at the shore, it was a hotish day and I was hoping to wash my face ,,, not in this $#it , I said..... Home we came , after an ice cream from Tomohawk ,,, emmmm!!!! Again a great day on the water with some great friends.... Looking forward to the next trip out to Dismal....(((Time is wrong, that's GMT. )))

I see in the last picture that you have a picture of Mr. Tenkara looking very cool and relaxed.
