Short on space? Try the Tenkara USA Sato Kit, which ditches the traditional fly reel to cut down on clutter.  

For under $300, the minimalist kit comes with one Sato triple-zoom rod that collapses down to 22 inches, but can expand in three lengths, depending on the size of the stream your dad wants to fish. It also contains a keeper with 15 feet of line, a tippet, three flies, forceps, and nippers—everything he needs for a few hours on the river.

Along with its compact size, the Tenkaro USA Sato Kit is also lightweight, with the rod weighing 2.6 ounces.
