Tenkara fly rods are extremely small and thus great for walking. But that one is the lightest, littlest fly fishing system we’ve seen.
It weighs 1.1 ounces and remains really under 2 ounces including range and leader.
At 10 inches compressed, it really is small enough to easily fit into a coat pocket.
Anglers flick a fly into swimming pools and moving liquid and battle seafood by raising the end associated with pole to pull seafood to shore, similar to fishing with an old-school cane pole.
The rods telescope going from lightweight to long in moments.
They work well for little streams and modest-size seafood where long casts and a drag aren't needed for fighting. They tend become small and so beneficial to hiking to remote fishing places.
Tenkara Rod Co. is increasing resources with this and also the slightly larger Mini Teton (12-foot extended, 10-inch collapsed, 1.9 ounces). available both designs on a single Kickstarter page, in which they sell for $150 and $165 respectively.
They ship with everything you need to start fishing, including pole, pole sock, tube, line, flies, tippet, and a line-keeper system.
We’ve maybe not used this model, but we fished along with other tenkara systems and liked them on tiny streams. If you’re looking for a light and small fishing experience, this one’s well worth examining.
