The beauty of tenkara fly fishing is in its back-to-basics simplicity. The Patagonia Simple Fly Fishing 8ft 6in Kit provides you with all the tools you need, including knowledge, to experience the beauty of being out on the water in search of fish in the same way that people have done it for centuries. The 8ft 6in Temple Fork Outfitters tenkara rod is the shortest of the three Patagonia Simple Fly Fishing kits. It is ideally suited for small creeks and is also a great rod to get children into the sport of fly fishing. Also included in the kit are floating tenkara line, leader, a dozen soft-hackle flies, quick setup guide, storage bag, spare rod parts, and the book and video. The acclaimed book, Simple Fly Fishing: Techniques for Tenkara and Rod and Reel, by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard and noted fly fishermen Mauro Mazzo and Craig Matthews, provides a great deal of advice for fishing with dry flies, nymphs, and wet flies and streamers. It focuses on a wide variety of waters, from fast-moving rivers to alpine lakes, and it features many detailed drawings, photographs, and anecdotes from many years spent on the river.
