About DRAGONtail Tenkara

Brent's 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 tenkara gear on many lakes, ponds, and large rivers as a form of simplified fly fishing.

Most people I tell about Tenkara are very interested but the $150+ 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 $100 Shadowfire rod which rivals many rods in the $150+ range. Our motto is "Affordable Quality In Tenkara Gear".

Quality Products

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 produce our own line of furled lines that lead the industry in performance. We are always seeking partnerships with factories that produce hi-end products.
