Zach Matthews released a pretty solid interview with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouniard on his podcast “The Itinerant Angler” this week.

While Mr. Chouinard speaks quite a bit about the re-issue of his “Simple Fly Fishing” book and what he enjoys about tenkara and his quest to simplify, he also expands on many of the philosophies that make him one of the more unique businessmen and environmental philanthropists of our day (my words, not his).
Take special note around 12 minutes into the interview when he shares what he has perceived to be one of the most important characteristics of a fly when fishing… It’s what makes tenkara such a killer set of techniques for catching fish in almost any situation.
