Video: Combining Tenkara Flyfishing and Bicycle Touring
For our last few tours, we’ve been combining fly fishing with bicycle touring. It is a great secondary activity to do on a bike tour and really allows you to see your environment in a different way. It gives you a reason to stay at a beautiful riverside campsite for a few days and explore, rather than feeling the eventual pull of momentum drag you along. In this video, we talk primarily about our tenkara fly fishing kit. Tenkara is a Japanese form of fly fishing that has grown in popularity the last few years because of its lower learning curve. You can literally be taught how to cast and catch fish with a tenkara rod in less than half an hour.
Some of the products we mention in the video are the TenkaraUSA Sato rod, Tenkara level line, Streamworks hemostats, Dry Shake, Grip Stud cleats and Crocs.

Great video – very informative. I suppose I’ll be a fisherman next, as I mimic all your other outdoor adventures…

Great video again Russ and Laura. The enthusiasm, originality, and simple insightfulness seems to be at least to fill a void in the media hyped life surrounding bikes, camping, and touring.
Keep up the great work and video production. Also, if I may make a request, please produce some more videos similar to the Troutback ride you guys had done some time ago as it provided huge inspiration.
