Hey Aron, I forwarded your question to Dan. In the meantime, here are a couple shots of his rig.
Hi Marc, I checked with the fly fishing team and they said absolutely. In heavy cover you can simply choke up on the rod and employ the same tactics involved with normal tenkara, it simply shortens the rod a bit. This way, you still gain all the benefits of the longer rod when you're in more open areas or on larger water. We'll be selling the book and the rod as a kit starting March 31 on There will be three rod lengths to choose from: 8'6", 10'6" and 11'6". I hope this helps. Please feel free to email if you have any more questions.
Hi Morgan, You can learn more about Patagonia sponsorship on our website. Good luck and keep shredding.
Hi Jay, Temple Fork Outfitters makes the rods and YC had a hand in designing them. We'll begin selling these Tenkara rods, the Simple Fly Fishing book, and various accessories in April. We also have some free instructional videos in the works from the authors of Simple Fly Fishing. Stay tuned...
Hi Peter, We tested the DVD and, yes, it is readable in the Euro code zone.
The book (and DVD) are now available from Thanks for your patience everybody.
Hi Kevin, Thanks for commenting on this story, it brings back good memories. I did a quick Web search and it doesn't look like the lyrics have a direct translation. "About 'Sala': The Qiang ethnic minority (the group most impacted by the 2008 Sichuan earthquakes) traditionally dances around the fire while singing this song. The words contain no meaning and are simply meant to inspire dancing." "The lyrics, according to Washburn, translate roughly to, 'We're dancing around a fire and it's awesome,” but the attitude of the song was, “We've seen disaster, but we're doing fine." Hope that helps, Kasey
Hang tight Robin. We should have some news about ordering the book & dvd real soon. We'll share an update here on Cleanest Line when the time comes.
Quick update on the book: The current leg of the tour is over and they've sold out of books. We're still waiting on firm news about online orders, international orders and retail store availability. Thanks for your patience and for all of the positive feedback. Keep it coming. It helps to know how much interest there is outside of the tour.
Nice little update from the river by local news station KTVB.
Hi Edward, They're only available at the book tour stops for now. If that changes we'll post an update here:
Hi Brandon, They need to be made of PLUSfoam to be recyclable and Chaco doesn't seem to be on the list.
Currently, the book is only available at the tour stops. We'll update you guys if that changes down the road.
Hi John, Thanks for the reminder. The study has been published and can be reviewed here:
Thanks Ross, that is beautiful.
I had to switch it back to the original. :)

Thanks John, we'll try and carve out some time to check all the links. In the meantime, iTunes is definitely the best place to listen to every episode.
Thanks Tom. Did what I could to orient the photo correctly.

Yes, thanks for asking. Please be sure and include the Take Action link when you share.
Hi Jesse, Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, we don't have any plans to sell Encapsil Down as a raw material at this time.
Today is the last day to submit your comment. Thanks to everyone who took action. At last check, 1,036,296 comments have been submitted.
Just heard the rowboat capsized and had to be abandoned. The crew was rescued by the Coast Guard and everyone is safe and sound.
Hi Kai, It's a great suggestion but we have nothing to announce at this time. Thanks for checking.
Hi Anon, Here is the update. We will post it to The Cleanest Line once a few more assets come in.
Don't send us to the gallows yet, Chico. Patagonia happens to be celebrating a milestone birthday later this year and we wouldn't want the party to be a bust...
