The “Polar Vortex” of 2014 has placed an unbroken solid ceiling of ice on my favorite local ponds and streams, yet I can still daydream of a day spent with my Ebisu tenkara rod, casting over open water, tussling with trout or panfish.

The USPO (and Tenkara USA) helped fuel my imagination further by delivering some new gear to my door. I received the debut issue of Tenkara Magazine as well as a new supply of 3.5 Level Line. Most exciting for me was the arrival of my first traditional tapered 11 ft. line. I can already tell by the look and feel of this 3rd generation product that I shall be casting into an April breeze with more confidence and accuracy. All I need do now is set up my vise beside a snow-bordered window, tie some kebari . . . and wait for the warmth at the other end of winter.
