Oh, the places you’ll go!
Have you heard of the Vagabox?
In 2012 one of the users of our forum, Acheateaux, had this idea of creating a traveling tenkara fly box. The Vagabox. The box would contain some flies, and be passed from angler to angler in an itinerant fashion.
Anglers would receive it, fish with flies in the box, and add some of their own flies. I had the pleasure of hosting it back in 2012, but then almost forgot about it. Until Mike at Troutrageous reminded me that, 2 years later, Vagabox was still around!
So, I spent a couple of hours last night going through all the posts I had missed in our forum, and trying to piece the “Vagabox Tales” together.
He’s been to a lot of places since I last saw him, and I’m sure he’s been to places I’m not even aware of. But, as best I could I tried painting a whole picture of where he’s been and what he’s seen and updating the map I had started two year ago. As one of the Vagabox’s hosts put it, “Da saga continues”. This map is intended to be a living interactive map that will grow with all the places the Vagabox will see. You can zoom in and click on him to read his stories.
Bookmark this post, and check in sometimes to follow the Vagabox around. We expect to host the Vagabox for a meet and greet at the Tenkara Summit in September.
HOW TO HOST THE VAGABOX:

*Please note, it is preferable that you post a few times in the forum before getting the box, we want to make sure it goes to people who will respond and pass it forward.
