Tenkara is the Japanese style of fly fishing with a rod a line and a fly. There is no reel involved. This method is best suited to small rivers but excels where there are complex currents to fish over. The very light leader makes it idea for covering fish again and again without spooking them. A return to simplicity. Stick, string and bent pin.... that's Tenkara. We were the first UK company to manufacture and supply Tenkara fishing tackle. For more information on Tenkara please visit the "Information and FAQs" part of the shop from the left menu.
