Tenkara fishing gear Modern day Tenkara is based on ancient Japanese methods of fly fishing that involve the use of just rod, fly and line.  The ancient commercial fishermen were in the field for days and weeks at a time, and had very limited resources. They constructed long bamboo rods, braided silk for their line and tied Kebari style flies with only thread and hackle.  The limitations on resource demanded that fly presentation be prioritized and induced techniques that were, and are still today, incredibly productive.

Today the telescopic graphite rods and the super lightweight line translates into a compact, streamlined and simple form of fly fishing that is not only effective but it also liberates you from the cumbersome gear requirements of traditional western equipment.
