Tenkara
« on: May 07, 2018, 11:49:37 AM »
I was looking into getting a Tenkara Rod just to try something new.  Has anyone ever fished with one or have any suggestions as to a good brand?

I haven't tried it myself, but have heard that Tenkara USA rods are good. They produce a lot of videos and resources for those interested in that form of fishing, so it may worth for you to check out. The owner/creator of the company spent a lot of time in Japan researching the method and meeting with Tenkara fishermen.

Here's an interesting blog post on Tenkara. It reports that western style fly fishing is way more popular in Japan and that Tenkara is kind of a niche.
