Designed off of a Japanese fly-fishing style not commonly used in the West, simplicity is at the heart of tenkara fishing. And its what has inspired this full package that has everything you need to start fly fishing right out of the box. The Teton fishing rod 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.
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 70 units.
Tenkara lines are of a single-strand construction with a 2-millimeter nickel-alloy tippet ring. With a 13-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.
