Tenakara Day

Posted by

What is Tenkara? Yvon Chouinard, CEO of Patagonia, describes it as "simplified fly fishing," a version of "less is more.” 

Tenkara consists of three basic elements: a telescopic rod, a line attached at the end of the rod, and a soft hackle fly. It's easy to learn and you can fish it on most rivers and streams. 

Tenkara is fun for experienced fly fishers looking to change up their game, or for folks who've never fished before (it's great fun for kids). 

Join us on September 12, 2015: 

  • 11am - Tenkara Demonstration by Bruce Skinner at Patagonia 
  • 11:30 - Soft hackle flies with Bill Scharninghausen 
  • 12:30 - Where to fish your new Tenkara gear
  • 1:00 – BBQ

Patagonia’s beginner’s kit includes all the gear you need to get started, including a book that explains the technique, step by step.

Since Tenkara rods are telescopic they take up very little room in your pack. Take one with you on your next hike or camping trip, and have some fun catching fish on the river.
