Mountain Fish Fight! Spin vs Tenkara or Fly Fishing Rod

I spent the day on Big Tumbling Creek in Virginia doing a test to determine whether spin fishing would be more effective than fishing with my short Tenkara Fly Fishing rod (should have the same results using a 3 wt fly rod). I used a silver Panther Martin on the spin rod since it was cloudy and a dry fly with a nymph dropper on the Tenkara. The results were pretty definitive. What a pretty place to do the test!

It goes without saying that fishing is dangerous as a result of the fast water, slick rocks and other hazards that occur at random, unexpected places. You need to exercise caution, particularly in the spring when the water is high or during rapid changes in tide, before you fish anywhere. You should always wear a life vest when fishing. In addition, a wading staff will help you keep your balance as you walk on the shoreline or wade.

The bottom line is that you must make your own judgment in terms of acceptable behavior and risk and not rely on the opinions expressed here.
