In some parts of Japan November is considered to be one of the luckiest months of the year. What better time than to raffle off a Tenkara rod! This is a 12 ft/360 cm 7:3 rod perfect for small Sierra streams and creeks. If you are thinking simple and light weight; buy some tickets and get lucky. Rod comes with soft cloth sack and aluminium screwcap tube.
Behind door number 2 we have one of the handiest items for your next trip to the water, a pair of world famous "Crocs". They are great to be used in lieu of heavy boots with your stocking foot waders or when paired with neoprene water socks they are wonderful for warm weather wet wading. Take them with you on your float tube in case changing weather requires you to walk in from the far side of the lake. This pair is size 13 to fit over stocking foot waders; if a different size is needed the can be exchanged at Outdoor World.
Last but not least, we have a great little book "Why I Fly Fish". This is a series of short essays by both professionals and celebrity fly fishermen explaining what it is that draws them to our sport; I am sure we could each see a bit of ourselves in their musings and observations. Chris Santella, best selling author of the "Fifty Places" series, has compiled a very entertaining collection of thoughts and photographs that any fly fisher would enjoy.
