Tenkara USA

Tenkara is the traditional Japanese method of fly-fishing where only a rod, line and fly are used.

Tenkara originated in the mountain streams of Japan, where professional fishermen used to catch fish for a living. With 11-13 foot long rods and no reel, anglers can very effectively fish mountain streams, with no unnecessary gear. The long rods telescope down to a mere 20 inches and are great for backpacking.
