about us

Tenkara is a traditional Japanese method of fly fishing that uses a long rod with a line attached to the end; no reel.  It is fundamentally simple and intuitive to learn.  However, tenkara can take years to master the subtleties; the perfect cast in windy conditions, that small eddie protected by branches, and the complex currents that stand between you and the fish.  Tenkara is a beautiful mix of tradition and cutting edge technology.
