I’ve been fly fishing for 20 years but I’m so happy to have found Tenkara! It removes all of the clutter and makes things simple! It’s a zen-like experience!
So exactly when are these TAMO Tenkara Nets going to actually be released?? I keep checking if they've been released for like 6 months with no update! Release it already or announce when you expect to release them.
Tenkara USA has responded quickly and thoroughly on multiple occasions over the years. Great rods, great equipment, great service - this is the A team.
Perfect for backpacking. Also great for kids or anyone who have trouble keeping a tight line on regular fly rod
I have been teaching fly tying for nearly 30 years. The tools are good and the set is an excellent value
Everything is profitable and needed.
The replacement rod tip sections are identical to my Sato rod. It arrived quickly and packaged very well with good protection. Very satisfied.
One complaint: I wanted to order some flies with my order but that increased my shipping cost substantially. It didn't make economical sense so I passed. Can't remember exactly now but I think the shipping cost was about the same or exceeded the cost of a vial of flies.
Very comfortable especially on warmer days. I've worn the shirt as a base layer on cooler days.
This is my first Tenkara rod. The Iwana is the right length and has a good feel and nice flexibility. Nice case for storing rod.
Rhoto is nice rod haven’t had a chance to fish with it yet
Ponds , lakes
Tenkara USA has great customer service, especially for repairs! No rod is breakproof so having a company hat takes care of you in a timely manner is very valuable.
In my area we have several small streams with a lot brush - my Sato is great but thinking Rhoto will be better for small creeks
I’ve only used spinners and baitcasters but I’ve always wanted to try fly fishing. Not wanting to spend that much I stumbled upon Tenkara fishing. I did my research and found that Tenkara USA fit my needs best and I really liked their views on fishing and life. I went ahead and got the Sato kit along with some extra different flies. We hiked up to Treasure lakes in search of Golden Trout and on the second cast I landed one! I continued to catch fish the whole time we were there. The Sato performed flawlessly even though I had barely had any idea on what I was doing, only watching videos before our trip. If you’re interested in a different way of catching fish I strongly suggest going over to Tenkara USA and getting yourself a kit.
