Based in Driggs, Idaho, and surrounded by some of the world’s best trout rivers and streams, Tenkara Rod Co. makes products for Tenkara anglers of all levels. A Japanese style of fly fishing that’s been around for hundreds of years, Tenkara (literally “from heaven”) gets a contemporary interpretation in the Cascade, the company’s smallest and lightest full-length rod. This version features a more understated matte finish.
Note: This package includes everything you need to start fly fishing right out of the box, including a rod, swivel tips, line, spool, and three hand-tied flies. The drop is limited to 130 units.
Measuring 8 feet long and weighing only 2.1 ounces, the Cascade is built for navigating narrow, brush-lined streams and tight spots where casting can be difficult—best suited for brook trout and smaller fish. It provides soft, flexible 5:5 action with precise control. Plus, it won’t tangle easily and requires no reel, making it a great rod for both kids and adults to learn with. When the day is done, its seven sections collapse to 18 inches for convenient travel.
All lines from Tenkara Rod Co. are handcrafted using a single-strand, non-tapered construction and a 3-millimeter alloy tippet ring. The line spool is designed specifically for Tenkara rods, and is just big enough to make winding your line simple and quick. Plus, it floats! The notches make it easy to attach flies, while the foam core helps dry your line if necessary.
