Backpacking Light Backcountry Fly Fishing Tackle Kit (DISCONTINUED)

Ryan Jordan's idea of backcountry fishing is to carry as little as possible, but make the stuff you do carry absolutely essential! This is Ryan's kit for Tenkara and traditional fly fishing in the backcountry.

Backcountry fly fishing doesn't have to be complicated. But when you enter a fly shop, you can't help but be overwhelmed at the number of doohickeys that hang from floor-to-ceiling pegboards.

Backpacking Light takes a different approach: - Take only what you need. Use all of what you take.

Combine this kit with a Tenkara Hane Fly Rod and for less than half a pound for the whole bit, you'll have everything you need to bring that trophy cutthroat to your titanium grill (which, by the way, weighs only an ounce, and you can buy it here!)

Features:

The kit includes:

  • The hallmark of the kit is a custom, hand-made, and beautiful bamboo fly box designed by Ryan Jordan. The box has an inlaid foam liner for securing flies, and an inlaid felt liner on the other half for moisture absorption. It is meticulously crafted with fine tools, brass hinges, and a tiny rare earth magnet closure that is durably set into its recess hole. Purchased separately, the MSRP for this fine box will be $80 but is not yet available separately from this kit.
  • Eighteen assorted hand-tied "Tenkara" style Japanese flies that imitate a variety of common mayfly, caddis, and small terrestrial insects. Included in this selection is the "Jordan PMD" - a fly originally tied and designed by Ryan Jordan, and having been featured in Fly Tyer magazine. MSRP $45.
  • A Simblissity Unslack Pack MSRP $25.
  • One 30-meter spool of Tenkara-branded 6X Frog's Hair tippet, considered by professional fly fishing guides to be the highest quality tippet on the market because of its very high ratio of strength-to-diameter resulting from its elasticity. MSRP $8.
  • A pair of miniature hemostats for responsible hook removal from fish that prevents excessive handling of the fish so it can be returned to its home in the water. The hemostats are also commonly used to crimp split shot to the tippet while nymph fishing. MSRP $6.
  • A MicroDop Plus bottle filled with Size #1 non-toxic split shot. MSRP $5.

Suggested MSRP for components sold separately: $169
