AMAGO™ 13ft6in (410cm)
Named after one of Japan's most beautiful mountain stream trout, the Amago is our longest non-zoom rod at 13ft and 6inches long (410cm). Longer rods provide distinct advantages over shorter rods. Generally speaking, we recommend using the longest rod you can for the stream you are fishing.
Based on the request of several tenkara anglers this rod has a black finish. The handle was meticulously designed to provide good counterbalance to the long rod and for extra comfort on a long day of casting your delicate line and fly . The wider end of the handle serves two purposes: it provides a slightly better counter balance to the rod, and serves as a good grip for using the full length of the rod.
Length: 13ft 6in (410cm)
NOTE: Due to the telescopic nature of the rods, and the fact that we rounded the numbers to have a clean metric-to-English conversion, rod lengths may vary slightly from indicated.

My first fish on my Amago was a 16” river smallmouth. It was the first of over a dozen that day. Fun, fun, fun!
The ice is forming on the lake now and my attention is now one ice fishing. What a fabulous way to end my open water fishing season!
I love my Amago for open water and larger fish. It has a great feel for the fight but it’s deceptively tough. I recently broke a Tenkara pole my brother in law loaned me attempting to land a large fish at Coffee Pot Rapids in Idaho. I replaced it with the Amago from Tenkara USA, which I should’ve used in the first place.
Just fished a local stream by the dam and the Amago performed very well. I have used the Sato for most of this year and the Amago was able to place the flies very nicely on the water. The extra length was great. Love my tenkara USA rods!
I took a chance and decided to go big or go home. I bought this rod knowing next to nothing about Tenkara. After a few days I found my rhythm. I am very pleased with this. Very calming, very intimate way of fishing. And one of my biggest concerns was answered last night. Could this rod handle a bigger fish? It absolutely can. Hooked a 16 inch rainbow that really put up a fight and was a blast landing him with this rod. Will absolutely be diving deeper into Tenkara especially with what this company has to offer.
With the Amago, I was looking for a rod that would give me a little more distance for lake fishing. This is the perfect rod for that but it’s definitely more of an arm workout over my Sato! Love it though!!
