We are excited to announce our newest collaboration with Tenkara Rod Co. for 2016. This ready-to-fish kit has been designed for simplicity, taking out the guesswork. It’s all about reverting you back to what makes fly fishing fun, and offering everything you need for a successful outing at your favorite high mountain lake or local stream.
The Topo Designs x Tenkara Rod Co. Kit includes a 10.5ft medium action Tenkara Rod, Tenkara line, selection of traditional Tenkara flies, a Leader Wallet to organize line and flies, as well as our limited edition Light Hip Pack to carry it all. This is fly fishing made easy.
Originating in Japan 200 years ago, Tenkara is a traditional type of fly fishing using only a rod, line and fly—no reel. Primarily used for mountain stream trout fishing, Tenkara is one of the most popular methods of angling among freshwater mountain anglers in Japan.
The Light Hip Pack carries all the essentials needed for a day off the beaten path at the stream, river or lake. Smaller necessities find a home in the long exterior or interior zippered pockets, while lower cinch straps are perfect for securing extra or oversized gear. A large waist strap and removable shoulder strap give multiple carrying options that allow you to carry the Light Hip Pack over the shoulder, on the waist or distribute heavier loads with both.
Built for the novice and experienced angler alike, this easy to fish, easy to pack kit has all the ingredients for an epic day in the backcountry or your backyard river.
The 10.5ft moderate action telescoping rod, packs discreetly into the Light Hip Pack, allowing for a minimalist approach to your favorite piece of water. The moderate action and 6:4 flex provides the angler the confidence to use many different fishing techniques in multiple fishing situations.
