The Amago™ is our big fish/big river rod. It has earned kudos from anglers who are frequently targeting larger trout (say over 17″ on a regular basis) as well as those targeting bass and other species. Even pink salmon have been successfully landed with the Tenkara USA Amago.

Tenkara is primarily for little trout. It makes an 8-inch brookie feel like a big fish. But I have a habit of not limiting myself to those fish. In Guyana, I caught baby tarpon on tenkara. In Saskatchewan it was northern pike and grayling. On a recent trip to Alaska with Hal Herring and others, we got into masses of pink salmon.”
