The most complete library of tenkara videos, we've created over 100 videos over the years. Our videos cover everything you need to know as you discover tenkara and its advantages. Clearly see tenkara techniques in action like: pinpoint accurate casts, the ability to keep line off the currents for drag-free presentations of the fly, and the intuitive landing of fish.
The Tenkara Cast® is the main tenkara podcast available. In it, Tenkara USA founder, Daniel Galhardo, speaks about all aspects of tenkara, from philosophy to how-to's.
Our tenkara blog has been one of the main channels we have used to spread tenkara far and wide. Here you can browse over a decade of content that is still relevant today.
The lines, flyies and service are the best. The videos, from tying knots to Japanese Tenkara fishing, are very good and educational.
This is the first rod that I purchased from TUSA 10 years ago. It is still a work horse. I have other rods for special locations like the Amago.
Nice fly box. Fits in my pocket nicely. Flies work great as well.
I bought the Hane rod for my fiancé who was interested in fly fishing, but had no experience. She has used the rod hard over about 10 trips and finally broke the second section of the rod. She was pretty upset her rod broke because she loved it so much. I went online and easily found the replacement parts for an extremely fair price. If you've used Orvis or similar companies you already know that it's not that cheap and may take months to get replacement parts. The parts came in a few days and were very easy to change out. I couldn't be happier with the speed and customer service. Tenkara USA really knows what they are doing and has me sold on all their products!
I broke the 2nd section of my Sato rod after using it for the 1st time. I ordered a replacement part and the TenkaraUSA service team had the part to me in two days. I can't say enough about the exceptional service I received. It was easy to replace after watching their video. Thank you TenkaraUSA!
Used the rod in a remote lake in Indian Peaks Wildrness last week. Caught beautifully colored cutthroats between 8-15 inches. Love carrying my Sato, a couple of lines and a couple of boxes of flies, nipper and floatant. Tenkara is perfect to fish the lakes from shore as well as the inlet and outlet streams
Tenkara is fun!
Nice to have the extra space for other flies...The box is still quite compact, and would fit in any pocket (save a jeans fifth pocket). The case material seems strong and the rounded edges make it comfortable to handle.
The integrated fly holder is a great bonus (love this), and the toothed spool works great to prevent unwinding. Versatile with regards to how you want to use it with regards to line(s) and tippet(s).
A streamlined design using nice materials. The rod cap is sized large enough to slip-on easily on my Hane, and the strap secures it quickly. As few parts as there are, one can tell that there has been a lot of consideration in the details.
I love the simplicity of this tenkara rod. It packs down to nothing for back packing trips and now lives in my car for trips after work.
I can be out of the car and casting in minutes.
Well built. Work really well in the CO.
Fast turnaround on parts. Hreat customer service. Great product.
While I haven't had an opportunity to fish with my new Rhodo Pole, I can attest to two things:
1. Everything is very high quality. Tenkara USA took the time with the small details. Included is a high quality storage tube made of aluminum and a nice protective sleeve for easy packing.
2. Their customer service is spot on. I made a mistake on my original order and they responded in minutes. Then, they applied a discount code that I didn't know existed. Further, after receiving the rod, I crushed one of the tips. They responded to my e-mail in record time and helped me get everything sorted.
I'll review again once I've had more time with the rod and I will most definitely be buying more from Tenkara USA.
OI lost the bottom screw cap of my 12' Iwana rod. I ordered new screw cap however after receiving, it did not fit. I called toll free number and was assisted by staff to resolve issue. I was sent a new rod handle. Excellent customer service.
