Tenkara Gear for Big Fish
Tenkara rods are capable of landing pretty large fish. We have seen 29-inch pike, 7-lb bass, salmon, carp, and everything in between being caught on our tenkara rods. And this is the tenkara gear we recommend if you're often after large fish. But as we say, the best tenkara rod to catch large fish is the rod you have with you. While the rods on the page are the ones we recommend as they will make landing larger fish easier, all rods in the Tenkara USA lineup are strong carbon fiber rods. Large fish will be more a test of your feel for how to play a fish than a test of the rods themselves.
