Default It's Here: 1st Tenkara Rod

After reading all the replies on a thread I made last October about Tenkara fishing and doing extra research I decided to give the Japanese method of fly fishing a try. Gotten the rod about a week and hopefully by next week will give it a try, the 12ft rod does seem a bit overwhelming lol...Here are some photo's I took last week when it arrive. Tenkara Iwana

I am excited for you trying a new form of fishing and expect to see reports as the learning curve grows. Thanks for posting.

You will really enjoy this rod. Been using mine over a year and caught a lot of crappie and 'gills on it. I use the 3.5 level line and 6x tippets for most of my fishing on this rod. Just got the Amago as well, big water rod. Hope you get much bendo on this one.

Cheers,
Craig
