    Tenkara Fly Fishing

    Try Action Packed Trip of a Lifetime, Ancient Japanese Tenkara Fly Fishing

    New

    Tenkara is the traditional Japanese method of fly-fishing where only a rod, line and fly are used. Tenkara is about fly-fishing simplicity and mountain-stream effectiveness. Eleven to fourteen foot long rods allow anglers to fish mountain streams in a way that is nearly impossible with western fly gear. Telescopic rods collapse down to a mere 20 inches, and few things are needed making tenkara ideal for backpacking. Tenkara is perfect for those in search of a pure, effective and simpler method of fly-fishing.

    Testimonials

    Letter from David L. Hughes

    Dear Carl,
    I finally got around to getting my film developed and this one enlarged. It was the best of them and the trout looks most like a 5 pounder in it... maybe we don't have to lie about it! That day with you and James is still the highlight of my fishing year. I haven't much chance to get out since. Best, Dave
