Tenkara rods are primarily used for fly fishing in small mountain streams and rivers. The rods are very versatile and can be used to catch a variety of different fresh water fish.
Tenkara rods are reel-less rods that include a rod, line and fly. The line is connected directly to the tip of the rod.
Tenkara rods are made of carbon fiber making tenkara rods extremely durable and designed to catch large fish.
You can use any fly with a tenkara rod, but for the best results consider using tenkara flies. We offer four fly patterns that are effective in a variety of waters and regions and offer great movement under water.
The size of the rod you need depends on the type of fishing you’d like to do as well as the terrain and size of the area in which you plan to fish. If you plan to fish in small streams with low, overhanging branches, then a shorter tenkara rod is a good option. A longer rod is good if you’re fishing in larger, more open streams and require more reach.
Tenkara has a variety of rods and the best rod depends on what type and size fish you want to catch, the stream size, terrain and the area you’re located in. If you’re unsure which is the best tenkara rod for you, contact us to get advice from our expert tenkara anglers.
You can use different tenkara lines, including the tenkara nylon line or tenkara furled line, with any tenkara rods.
With longer rods, you are able to hold your line and leader off the water and it’s also easier to reach the rod tip over currents so there’s less risk of your fly being dragged off course.
Tenkara rods are ultralight by design and easy to use. The rod design allows your fly to be in the water for longer which means you spend less time false casting and can achieve longer drifts. They’re also a more versatile rod than a traditional fly rod, meaning you can fish in smaller streams and areas you would often not be able to access with other fly rods.
I love tenkara fishing and just need to move my feet so the larger fish don’t get too far up or down stream on me and break me off!

Provides a new approach to fishing, especially targeting fish, dry fly or nymph, on small to medium
streams with varying currents and objects such as boulders etc.
Tapered Tenkara Lines (furled lines)
I take this outfit with me on my motorcycle trips. Never know when you might need to stop for a break and check out a new stream.
Incredible rod! Love using in the small streams of Western North Carolina!
I fished a few hours, exploring the stream as I went. I'm recovering from a leg injury and move very slowly. I've fished the stream twice and haven't seen any sign of fish.
Very good book if you’re new to Tenkara.
Great flies, bonus box
