We became fast friends with the Tenkara Rod Co. guys on a bikepacking adventure in Idaho’s Sawtooth National Recreation area this summer. We were fascinated by -- and jealous of -- their simple, compact fly fishing kits that were quickly brandished every time we stopped near a lake or stream. This is how we learned about Tenkara, the traditional style of fishing, that’s been practiced in Japan for the last two centuries. Lacking a reel and yard after yard of synthetic fly line, Tenkara Rod Co.’s lightweight, packable design make it the ideal companion on any endeavor that includes fishable waters. Over campfire flask nips, bonds were formed and creative ideas flowed. We are excited to present this collection of fishing inspired, adventure-ready products in partnership with our friends at Tenkara Rod Co.
