DRAGONtail Mizuchi small stream zoom rod designed in collaboration with Teton Tenkara’s Tom Davis. Three extremely fishable lengths for those who love small water and the fish that inhabit them.
Small Stream Rods
Great options for small streams, tight canopy, and the fish that call those places home
“Do-it-all” 12-foot (360cm) rods that will handle virtually any situation on the water
Trading a bit of performance for versatility, zoom rods provide multiple fishable lengths and are almost like carrying two rods in one
- Tenkara Adventure Outfitters Bad Axe 300/350 Zoom ($135)
- DRAGONtail Hydra zx390 Zoom ($124.99)
- NIRVANA 370z Zoom ($179.99)
Rods that are best matched to trout and unweighted flies, but longer in length for slightly larger waters or where overhead canopy is of little concern
Warm Water (Fixed-Line) Rods
Straying from true tenkara equipment and techniques; bass, bruiser bluegill, or other warmwater species beware…
A little bit of this and that to get ready for the water
