Introduce yourself to the ancient Japanese art of tenkara fishing with this technical gem. Manufactured of a composite consisting of microscopic glass balls integrated into IM12 graphite matrix this medium-fast action NANO telescopic rod weighs only 90 grams or 3.2 oz.
Imagine an 11 and ¾ foot rod collapsible to only 22 inches and fitting into a 24 inch carrying tube. Imagine hiking and coming across a mountain stream, taking the rod out of your back-pack, attaching the tenkara line and a fly and begin fishing for brook trout. Simple and zen!
A leader of a 6X (about 3 lb test) is recommended for best performance.
See our tenkara accessories and kebari series of flies designed and tied by Anthony Colucci, who has fished this way for almost 50 years.
Includes tenkara line, leader and line holder.
