November 18, 2015

Even with something as simple as tenkara, choosing your first tenkara rod may seem daunting. There are decisions to be made in terms of fish targeted and waters fished. In this episode, Daniel will walk you through the lineup of tenkara rods, tenkara lines and tenkara flies offered by Tenkara USA to help you choose your first tenkara rod.
Hint: if you are having a hard time choosing, just get the adjustable Sato rod by Tenkara USA, it is ultra-light, covers the main lengths of tenkara rods, and will be a versatile rod in small and large waters alike.

Referenced in this episode:
Rhodo, adjustable 8’10”/ 9’9”/10’6”, the shortest tenkara rod is ideal for tight streams.
Sato, adjustable 10’8”/ 11’10”/12’9”, probably the most versatile, our usual recommendation.
Iwana, 12feet, a lower price rod and a classic in the tenkara community.
Amago, 13’6″, our “big fish” rod.
Ito, adjustable 13′ / 14’7″, ideal for larger waters and often chosen as a 2nd rod.

    Do I already own the Sato?
