The "Chupacabra" Care Package

The "Chupacabra" Care Package

At Rocky MTN Tenkara, we have a tradition of explaining the motivation behind our rod designs and names. The inspiration for this one comes from the legendary creature, rumored to be a hunched beast with spiky fur and a venomous bite - the cryptic known as "Chupacabra". The moniker means "goat sucker" in Spanish, but this creature has made a name for itself in Mexico, the southern US, and particularly in Puerto Rico.

"Growing up in the southwest, specifically the alien capital of the world, I'm no stranger to tales of strange creatures and sightings of the unknown. Who hasn't taken their unwitting friends snipe hunting or heard the eerie story of La Llorona? Who hasn't heard a rustle in the bushes while out on a far-off trail, or felt a chill while fly fishing in a river, waiting for a bite?

In a place where UFO sightings are as common as tumbleweeds, the chupacabra is just another local celebrity. This legendary beast, said to prey on livestock, has been the star of countless campfire stories and late-night debates.

Whether it's real or not, the chupacabra represents the wild, mysterious spirit of the southwest – a perfect blend of fear, fascination, and folklore that keeps us all looking over our shoulders... and up at the stars. Keep your eyes peeled and your lines tight - Casey"

Come hang out with us at Rocky MTN Tenkara, where we're all about the stories! If you've reached out to us before, you know we always respond with insightful replies and genuine truths. The Chupacabra may be just a myth, but for us, it's a way to start a conversation and pay tribute to our New Mexico roots through an epic tale we can't wait to share with everyone.
