I finally decided to replace my 15-year-old Orvis gear bag with something a little more modern and technical. At my local Bass Pro Shops, I found the White River gear bag–a feature packed bag that is perfect for tenkara as well as other types of fly fishing. After comparing it to several other bags, this was the best gear bag for the money and so far, it has exceeded my expectations.
PLEASE READ: Before you say a gear bag is “against tenkara” or isn’t “simple”, note that I do not carry this on the stream. I use it to organize my gear at home and leave it in my car in case people I’m introducing tenkara to need gear (or just want to try some different gear they don’t have).
