    Received and fished my Tatsu 360 this week. It’s the end of trout season in Michigan but a few marginal streams are still open. I really just went to cast and play with lines and leaders but ended up with two browns and lost a third when I took a call, I hate cell phones. It’s my first tenkara rod so I really don’t have anything to compare against but it was everything I had hoped for, how often does that happen?

    I’m the director for Michigan TU’s Youth Trout Camp in Michigan and I can see us adding tenkara to the curriculum for 2015. The casting is easy playing fish is a ball and the entry cost point means all the kids that come to our camp that are not from fly fishing families can continue flyfishing at home without dipping into their college fund. Exactly what i was looking for.

    I’ll probably be contacting you for a few camp rods this winter/spring.

    Thanks,
    Greg

        No, I didn’t take the time to tie anything special. I was just swinging bead head soft hackles. This was in a public park in a section that our watershed manager didn’t think was holding trout, that’s the other reason for my outing.

        Since then I let a couple of our other camp instructors use the rod and I wasn’t sure I was going to get it back. They, and I’m sure a lot of other people, didn’t understand that you cast a tenkara rod, not just dapple it.

    My Nissin Zerosum 400 (6:4) arrive today one day ahead of schedule. First impression, Wow! this Tenkara rod is stunningly beautiful. Second impression, it is incredibly light. My other rod is a “USA” rod and although I have no complains about it the difference between the two is parallel to the difference between a 1980’s Cadillac and a 2015 Lamborghini (the Nissin being the Lambo). I will now use my USA rod just for nymphing and the Zerosum for real Tenkara fishing. I probably won’t be able to go fishing until the weekend but I can’t hardly wait. Buying this rod cements in my mind what I suspected for the last three years, if you are going to do Tenkara stick with REAL Japanese equipment. Although I only use furled lines the free Sunline was a nice addition from Dragontail, I will try it as soon as get to the water. I’m very happy with their service and their products. I recommend the Depuy line. I particularly like the sighter tip on that line. One last thing. If you are thinking of buying one of these Japanese rods do invest in a case for it. They only come with a soft cloth cover (very nice by the way) but you won’t regret the extra protection of a case or a tube.

    Thank you Dragontail, great service!

    Love the tatsu, took it to a local park lake and caught 2 dozen stocked rainbows ,at about 1.5 to 2.5 lbs a peace, within 2 days of receiving the rod. Didn’t bring a net with me the first day (like an idiot) and lost a few fish as well as a couple of flies, the next day I lost the last kebari I had to the the wear and tear of the catching of 14 more fish.

    If you are looking to find great tenkara rods and gear for a great price, with great customer service, this is the place to come. I have had my shadowfire 360 for about 2 months now and have caught many, many trout on it. I have also purchased multiple items from Brent and every time the quality has been excellent. Brent just recently helped me out by helping me pick a good line to go with my rod for some high alpine lake fishing. He was quick to respond to my many questions and went above and beyond to help out. This is one of the best companies to deal with and offer great products! Also, give their flies a try, the Utah Killer bugs are great and last a long time.

    Can’t say enough positive things about Tenkara fishing and Dragontail. Brent is the absolute best when it comes to customer service….not because of product defect, but from my own lack of balance (when you slip and fall in the river, throw your rod away). I have done western fly fishing for several years, but have not considered myself a successful trout fisherman until I took up Tenkara. It made me focus on my stalking technique because the actual mechanics of casting and no reel took all the “thinking” out of fishing and I really started to be a consistent producer. I only use 3 flies….a reverse hackle, Beadhead pheasant tail nymph and killer bug, all of which I tie myself (easy to do….just started tying when I took up Tenkara). I pay no attention to hatches anymore. I fish on average, three times a week and only had my western rod out once in 3 months. I have a Tatsu360….great products, great company.

    I live in The DFW area in Texas. I bought the Shadowfire rod, line, and an extra tip at the last minute for a hiking trip in Utah. Brent got everything to me on time. On the trip I caught Grayling for the first time and the biggest Brook trout I have ever seen. The wind on the trip shut down my friends using 4 and 5 weight flyrod set ups. We all ended up sharing my Shadowfire, which was surprisingly manageable in the high wind. One week later I used the rod to catch Bass and Bluegill in Texas. My brother likes this rod more than one he bought that cost twice as much. Great company and a great product!
