These flies are perfect for the little trout I’m catching on my local creeks. The fish don’t get too big, and I’ve had the greatest success with this little fly. I keep a pretty good stock of them.
honestly, the best customer service experience in years, well done
I have owned my Tenkara for about 10 years and love fishing with it when conditions are right (low winds). Recently broke 2nd section landing 14” Brown. Called for repair and service was excellent. Shipped a 3 section replacement within several days and now ready to fish. I am very impressed with this rod and service.
Customer service is top notch!
Alpine Lakes & Streams
The tapered tenkara nylon line lays out really smooth. I have caught many nice bluegill bream already.
Sato rod is well-made, easy to use, customer support is superb. I am very happy with all Tenkara USA products.
I cannot say enough about how easy and great the purchase experience is with buying all things Tenkara on this site. However, the best thing is the quality of the product and the overall attention to detail.
The folks at Tenkara treated me like gold. I busted the last 4 segments of my Amago and they replaced them with no hassle.
I love the simplicity and challenges of tenkara fishing. I have been fishing tenkara for as long as Tenkara USA has been in existence. As soon as I read a post about tenkara/tenkara usa , phoned Daniel Galhardo and told him about my work with Educational Recreational Adventures teaching outdoor skills and ecology to kids. He graciously offered to equip us with our first 10 rods (his prototypes) for $6.00 each). We were launched into the tenkara fishing guiding and teaching world! For approximately 10 years, Sam Vanderbeek and I taught upwards of 100 kids to fish tenkara through workshops, outings and camps. When their parents saw the kind of success their children, as young as 7 years old, we’re experiencing, they hired us to teach them. During this same time period, I traveled to Japan with a Japanese sister and law and fish with Yoshikazu Fujioka and learned so much from him. I became an “Authorized Tenkara Guide” through Tenkara USA, after having fished with Daniel and Dr Ishigoki in Boulder Cr at the Tenkara Summit.
I had zero experience with fly fishing or Tenkara and I was able to pick it up and catch trout in no time!
Tapered Tenkara Lines (Nylon)
I have not tried a mono Filament casting line yet. I’ve used various furled lines. Wow! I was making “line-off-water” casts and great distances without having to force it. This is a must have for anyone who is interested in Tenkara style casting!
Beautifully made, well- designed and superb customer service.
