The Tenkara rod has a long and proud history dating back over 200 years to the mist-covered mountain passes and alpine streams of 17th century Japan.

Tenkara rods did not get to be the way they are by accident. Over hundreds of years they have evolved from simple bamboo poles to the modern ultralight high-tech carbon fiber telescopic rods we use today. They are designed specifically for fishing unweighted wet flies in small streams.

Originally made of bamboo, the Tenkara rod is ideally suited for fast-flowing mountain streams and alpine lakes, both in Japan and throughout the world.

Today, Tenkara rods are made from carbon fiber, a material that faithfully replicates the lightweight feel and flexibility that characterized the early bamboo originals.

Tenkara fishing rods are a big part of tenkara fishing, and you need to select the fishing rod that best suits you from the vast array available in the market.
