Tenkara 12-fly set in box

12 Tenkara Flies in Box
This slit-style and very slim fly box contains 3 of each of the tenkara flies we offer: the Amano kebari, the Ishigaki kebari, the Oki kebari and the Takayama kebari.

Tenkara Fly, Amano size 12 3 Pack

Amano Kebari™ – Size 12
This is the only tenkara fly used by Mr. Katsutoshi Amano, a name readily recognized by tenkara practitioners in Japan. Like most tenkara masters in Japan, Mr. Amano sticks with one fly pattern, and his entire box is filled with the same exact fly – same size, same color. This tenkara fly comes alive when underwater, especially if pulsated.

Tenkara Fly, Oki size 8 3 pack

Oki Kebari™ – Size 8
Many tenkara anglers in Japan favor larger tenkara flies, even for trout in mountain streams. With faster flowing waters, larger flies give fish a good opportunity to see it and the potential high energy intake is too much for them to resist. Particularly effective for when the water is flowing fast, or for when the bugs are bigger, this size of tenkara fly should be in every angler fly box. Their forward-facing hackle also ensures a very lively fly underwater. This tenkara fly can be a very effective “secret weapon”. Size 8. Three Flies.

Tenkara fly, Takayama, size 16 3 Pack

Takayama Kebari™ – Size 16
The Takayama Sakasa Kebari is the tenkara fly that completes our set of 4 flies. Offered in size 16, it’s our smallest tenkara fly. Unlike in Western fly fishing, where a lot of people believe a super small fly is necessary, tenkara anglers hardly ever go any smaller than a size 16 for their fly. The size 16 fly will be handy for those days when a fish is rising to the fly but not taking it, or in waters with a little more pressure and pickier fish.

Tenkara Fujino Nylon Line

NEW: Tapered Nylon line
The new Tenkara USA line is a tapered nylon line that casts incredibly easily, has the highest visibility of any of our lines, and will be a staple in many tenkara anglers’ kits. This is our new main recommendation for anyone getting started with tenkara as it is easy to cast, easy to see and simple to connect to the rod.

Tenkara rod ties

Tenkara Rod Ties
There are two ways to manage your tenkara line when you are not using it. You can use a spool system, such as our Keeper, or you can have an “on-the-rod” system such as the Tenkara USA Rod Ties.

Tenkara USA IWANA 12ft, 360cm

12ft (360cm)
The Iwana has become our classic all-around rod at a great value. It feels very light-weight and precise. The progressive taper, ultra-light weight, and tip action provides for great battles, even when hooking the smaller fish. Quality and strength are by no means compromised, and landing large fish is not unheard of (8lbs mentioned on a forum thread!). If you are going to streams where 12 inch trout are trophies this is the rod.

Tenkara USA Sato, 10’8″/ 11’10″/12’9″

Triple-zoom 10’8”/ 11’10”/12’9”
The Tenkara USA Sato™ rod is named after Mr. Ernest Satow, an avid mountaineer who was the first person to make a written record of tenkara. The Sato is a compact and lightweight tenkara rod. At its shorter length it is perfect for tighter streams, and at its full length it will be ideal when the stream opens up again or when you find a bigger pool to cast your fly.
