Set Up Camp! Tenkara Rods

They say a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work. But for Tenakara Rod Co. it's the best of both worlds. Tenkara offers the fly fishing experience to people of any skill level for a totally reasonable price. Now we love them even more for making our pack light and our trips easier. Their newest addition is The Pocket Fly Fishing Rod that shrinks to just 10 inches. Back this project over at or check out their website at

"We have been working on these rods for over a year now and we finally have it all figured out. The Mini series! Using a high quality carbon fiber material sourced from Korea we have been able to make the Mini Sawtooth and Mini Teton. The Mini Sawtooth is a 9 foot rod. It only weighs 1.1 ounces and is 10 inches when collapsed. The Mini Teton is a 12 foot rod. It only weighs 1.9 ounces and is 10 inches when collapsed."

"Each rod comes with a lifetime warranty, we stand behind our product because we love fishing so much and want everyone to enjoy it. That means being able to use a rod that you have bought. So if there are any issues or problems we strive to get them solved within a week to get you back on the water."

"Tenkara is a simple form of fly fishing that requires a rod, line, and fly. The rods are collapsible making them extremely easy to transport and move from location to location. You can essentially be fishing in 30 seconds. The line attaches to a piece of fabric at the end of the rod called the lillian. Then it can be wrapped around the line clips for storage. At the end of your line there is a tippet ring where you can simply attach the length of tippet that you need, and then your fly."

At just under 10 inches, these rods will fit in a pocket, backpack, briefcase, or just about anywhere!
