Yvon Chouinard, Craig Mathews, and Mauro Mazzo briefly go over the core of Tenkara in preparation for the new book and limited edition Tenkara rod to be released by Patagonia and only found at Patagonia company stores.

I just came back from my trip to Hazel Creek which also was the first time I used a Tenkara rod. I have to say it’s pretty addictive and for sure more effective on a small stream.
