Tenkara Rod Co. is based in Driggs, Idaho. A mecca for the outdoors. Within an hour from our home office we have some of the best river, stream and lake fishing in the US. Tenkara is not only about catching fish, but simplicity and being involved in nature. We have designed our Tenkara rods to be lightweight, durable, and efficient. Have a look around the site and please let us know if you have any questions.
"The early morning has gold in its mouth." -Benjamin Franklin The Owyhee rod is a Summer Brown Trout favorite.
We have been working on this rod for quite a while. After a lot of testing and tweaking the end product has turned out really nicely. The Owyhee is a 13 foot rod and we have still kept it pretty stiff. The first thing you will notice about the rod is that it is heavier than a normal Tenkara rod.

LISTEN! Casting with a Tenkara rod is simple. There are many ways to cast and even different ways to hold the rod. The best part about it is, there is no wrong way to do it!

In September of 2013, a couple of buddies decided to try out the Teton and Sawtooth in their respective areas. Venturing to several different water sources in the Teton and Sawtooth mountain ranges the two were able to catch a lot of fish, enjoy nature, and have a great time. Luckily, the events of this tenkara trip were very well documented and we have put together a little video. Tenkara isn't about catching the biggest or most elusive fish. It is about getting out into nature and finding those special moments, the key is simplicity, enjoy!
