My Tenkara Story
Before I found Tenkara, I was very intimidated to try any form of fly fishing but always felt like it was something I would like to do. When I discovered Tenkara, I literally fell in love with fishing all over again. I could not believe how many fish I was missing out on and how easy it was to target them with a Tenkara set up, and I didn’t even have to mess around with reels and spools messes. Though Tenkara is traditionally for small rivers and creeks, I have had great success in using it many lakes, ponds, and large rivers as well.
Most people I tell about Tenkara are very interested but the $120+ rods are just out of their price range and I didn’t like the feel of most cheap rods. This inspired me to introduce a Tenkara rod that did fit their price range and still gave them a quality rod such as our Shadowfire and KOMODO rods which rival many rods in the $150+ range.
We are in the Tenkara business for the long haul and plan to always be around to provide support and parts if needed.
We went through several prototype Tenkara rods for different producers to find the right one to give us top quality rods that are assembled very well. We have also brought in high quality furled Tenkara lines from Moonlit Fly Fishing to offer with our rods to give you the best experience fishing Tenkara, a quality line can make a big difference. We are seeking to offer more and more items that Tenkara anglers use and are looking for.
We provide quick replies to emails and get order out quickly. I even check messages late at night sometimes to get you answers fast. Happy customers are at the root of our business and are always a goal for us.
