Too cold to use them yet in the midwest
Being a novice fly fisherman with zero experience in Tenkara, I found the learning curve to be very easy - with the help from Tenkara USA's instruction videos.
Within the first 6 months of purchasing my Sato Rod and Starter Kit, I have fished a wide range of waters from the banks of high mountain streams, to the shores of small ponds, to the inlets of lowland lakes from my paddleboard. It has quickly become my go-to rod for quick hikes, 4 wheeling Jeep trips, as well as multiday fishing excursions.
The versatility of the Sato has allowed me to catch everything from brookies and trout to pan fish. With the simplicity of the starter kit, I have everything I need to get a fly in the water within minutes of finding a fishing spot.

Compact and the right small length. Comfortable and balanced.
My number of days fishing has increased 3x since I got my first Tenkara. Having a rod that goes anywhere without a hassle is awesome.
I’ve been fly fishing since I was 8. The Tenkara system made me feel like I was learning how all over again. So much fun and so quiet. My other rods are jealous.
Great rod, fits in the side of my camera bag easy. Usually catch little brook trout with it. Replacement parts came very fast in the mail.
I prefer 3.5 Level line to other sizes and this particular color is my favorite - easy to see while fishing.
Perfect line, casts smoothly with a delicate presentation (I use Copeland 3x 4x 5x no problem on a TUSA Sato, TRC Sawtooth & Kita 380 with dries, terrestrials, kebari, and nymphs. If I’m casting in the wind this is my go to
Great company, great rods and excellent service.
Thanks for the superior custom service! I was able to get back on the water faster than I thought and in time for the BWO hatch later that week.
