patagoniaflyfish's new “Simple Fishing”-Kit. I highly approve. As soon as I get my hands on that book I'll let you know just how awesome it is.

looks like April Vokey… not sure, though.

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. I really had to force myself to use my normal rod at least for one day while I was there. Seems like Tenkara is gaining even more popularity now that Patagonia is promoting it. 

All I can say is that I’m going to leave my reel at home on a regular basis now. 

Tenkara rocks.

One of the best videos I saw this year. Very cool.

Getting fed up with winter over here… who`s counting the days, too?
