My husband recently became obsessed with tenkara, or the Japanese method of fly fishing. All you need is a rod, line and fly -- there's no reel. (It's like the fixed gear bicycle of the fly fishing world!) It's becoming more popular as bike campers and tourers are taking their set-ups with them when they hit the road, and Tenkara USA has sent us a fantastic starter kit with a retail value over $225: one of their nicest rods, the Sato; a line holder; tapered line; tippet spool; and some flies. Now one of you Sweepers can also get hooked on this simple beauty of this outdoor pursuit!
