    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.

    I like using my tenkara gear to catch: Smaller size fish (say 8-12" / 20-30cm), Medium size fish (12-16" / 30-40cm), Trout, Other species
    I like using my tenkara rod in: Very small streams, Mountain streams, Stillwater
    Big fish rod!

    If I had to sum this rod up in one word, that word would be “backbone”. This rod has a lot of backbone to it and can definitely handle larger fish. Catching bass and Kokanee on this rod is a blast! However, this rod can still handle smaller fish just as well. This rod is very easy to cast. I taught my 10 year old how to cast on this rod.

    Lakes/ponds from shore or kayak

    First outing with this rod started with a chunky 15" rainbow (what a blast!), a 10" and 13" brown, and a few smaller bows. No doubt the Amago can handle bigger fish (will test next week). It's a bit OP for smaller fish (especially 3" bluegills, lol). Love the rod so far, and appreciate the 13'6" reach particularly casting from Stillwater shores.

    Tried the Amago rod out for the first time today on the Swan River, just outside Bigfork, Montana and it handled great! I tried it with the pre-made Tapered Tenkara Lines, both the Nylon and the Furled; and I found the castability easy to learn in variable wind conditions. I can see using the longest one available on the Swan River's slow-moving backwaters. Didn't catch anything, but hey, I spent the day hiking in Montana and practicing my cast.

    The Amago is a great rod very versatile I can dry fly and nymph with a simple fly change.

    I've really enjoyed this rod so far. I've caught a few huge bluegills and small largemouths on it so far. But I really bought it for smallmouths on some small creeks near home. It casts beautifully and can drop a small fly very elegantly, but it has enough backbone to handle a good-sized smallmouth.

    The rod is intended for my 10 year old daughter who has done little fishing other than Tenkara. Her first attempts casting the Amago went very well. I think it's a great rod for kids as well as adults. I highly recommend it.
