Located in Central Idaho, the Sawtooth mountain range is a gorgeous natural area that houses the Tenkara Rod Company. With an eye for natural beauty and the pursuit to create high-performing products, the company has crafted a line of tools to impress both the novice and experienced fishermen. This is a full package that has everything you need to start fly fishing right out of the box. Its collapsible features and lightweight design make it an excellent choice for the Ultralight Community.
Note: This drop includes the Teton tenkara rod, line, line spool, 5x tippet, line clips, and three hand-tied flies. Note this drop is limited to 50 units.
Designed off of a Japanese fly-fishing style not commonly used in the West, simplicity is at the heart of the tenkara fishing. The Teton is a flexible, lightweight rod that won’t tangle easily and doesn’t require a reel to function. It's best suited for catching trout in the 6- to 18-inch range, but is also capable of landing larger fish. At full length, the rod measures 12 feet with 9 segments, but can collapse down to just 20 inches—which makes it ideal for travel or camping. The 6:4 action means that is flexes a bit less than the more playful Sawtooth rod. Easy to maneuver and finished in a unique custom coloration, it’s a great option for fisherman looking for a timeless rod that can be taken anywhere.
Tenkara lines are of a single-strand construction with a 3-millimeter nickel-alloy tippet ring. With a 10.5-foot length and non-tapered construction, they are a perfect fit for the rod. Additionally, the included line spool is custom-fit to the rods for fast winding and easy fly attachment. Three hand-tied flies round out the package.
