Favorite place to fish?
Hmmmmm..... I've been out West and yes the mountains are phenomenal, but id have to say the Driftless of Wisconsin is my fav. There is one specific stream in the WI driftless that is a pine relict stream, which are sandstone bluffs with old pines growing out of them. the stream itself runs in and out of the feet of the bluffs, crystal clear spring fed too! its full of brown trout and perfect for tenkara. it's my dream stream!
What is your favorite rod?
Oh man, that's a tough one! So far on my tenkara journey I think that if i am throwing a kebari and have overhead casting room..... I really love the Tanuki Tenkara 375! Its super lightweight, well balanced, cast great and can handle a bigger fish trout!
I have 2 favorite fish, if thats ok? haha. I do love a fall colored up brookie and the other is a Rio Grande cutthroat! The way their throats are colored up, black spots then fading away down towards the tail! Exquisite!

What tenkara wisdom would you like to share?
I think this one goes for all fishing, but I didn't know it when I began. In my first months of tenkara fishing I lost tons of kebari.... why? Well, because I was not wetting my knots. I would cast and hear a "SNAP!", like a whip cracking sound and cast to rising trout, see the take, and set the hook only not land that trout. So wet your knots. HAHA.
