I stopped by at Fly Fishing Specialties here in Sacramento yesterday just as they were setting up their new TenkaraUSA display.

Oh my gosh I want one!

I grabbed the 13' AYU rod and it was so strange. I could see the rod, I could feel that I was holding something, but it had no mass. It was so light that part of my brain was having trouble accepting that it actually exists.

I was told that Daniel from TenkaraUSA is doing an in store training for the staff on Tuesday at 10am. Rick, one of the owners, invited me to stop by so I think I'm going to take some time off from work to go. I'm planning a lot of backpacking this summer and this rod would be perfect.

I can so see myself getting hooked on this new rod and new technique.
