Tenkara Gear Shop

Tenkara Angler has struck up online affiliate relationships with a few domestic tenkara gear suppliers. By clicking (& purchasing) through these links below, Tenkara Angler receives a small “finders fee” that greatly helps keeping things running around here. You as the shopper will pay no more than you normally would purchasing through these retailers’ sites. As such, we’ve curated a small assortment of products that those interested in tenkara and/or fixed line fishing may find appealing. Enjoy!

Tenkara & Fixed-Line Equipment

Small Stream Rods

Great options for small streams, tight canopy, and the fish that call those places home


All-Around Rods

“Do-it-all” 12-foot (360cm) rods that will handle virtually any situation on the water

Zoom Rods

Trading a bit of performance for versatility, zoom rods provide multiple fishable lengths and are almost like carrying two, or in some cases three rods in one

Long Rods

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

Big Trout & Warm Water Fixed-Line Rods

Straying from traditional tenkara toward fixed-line fly fishing; big trout, bass, bruiser bluegill, or other warm water species beware…

Compact Tenkara Rods

Ultra compact rods that collapse down very, very small for the ultimate portability


A little bit of this and that to get ready for the water

ikari T magnetic line spool



Line Holders


Other Accessories
