Tenkara USA Introduces New Hane Rod

More Compact, Featherweight, Perfect for Backpacking

Boulder, CO (June 19, 2018)Tenkara USA, the original American tenkara rod company, is proud to introduce the new Hane Rod, built to pack down even smaller for hiking, bikepacking, or any kind of travel.

Measuring just under 15 inches when collapsed, the Hane (pronounced: “huh – nay”) is a super compact all-around tenkara fly fishing rod that will quickly become your favorite adventure rod.  The compact size and light weight allows the Hane to fit nicely inside a small day pack or bike pannier, and is an ideal tenkara rod for backpacking, bikefishing and other adventures.

Designed to be a rod that can tag along in a variety of conditions without compromising durability, the Hane works well in mountain streams as well as urban fishing outings like ponds. Whether you’re targeting trout or bass, the Hane will be a go-to rod for off-road adventure.

The white color is unique among the Tenkara USA lineup, blending in with open skies above. A black rod does a good job blending in with canopy, but white is a perfect camouflage for fishing ponds and open meadow streams. The tip of the rod is black, however, so we slow humans can keep our eyes on it.

Hane Specs:
Weight: 3.5 oz (100 g);
Closed length: 15″ (38cm)
Open lengths: 10’10” (330cm)*
Handle length:8″ (20.5cm)
Segments: 12
