This simple fly fishing rod, discovered by The Grommet, takes fly fishing back to basics, proving a rod, a line, and a fly are all you need to master the sport. Fly-fishing can be an intimidating sport, but Tenkara offers a simple, less expensive fly fishing alternative. All you need to do is extend the telescoping fishing rod, connect the handcrafted line, and put the fly out. It’s uncomplicated, and the reel-less design is quiet, elegant, and suited to enjoying nature. Tenkara is made with high-quality cork and other lightweight materials. It’s similar to a traditional fly fishing rod, but much lighter, more portable, and easier to learn. The rods shrink down to less than two feet and weigh almost nothing—the heaviest model is 3.4 ounces (lighter than an iPhone). Wondering how to bring in a fish without a reel? Easy. You angle the rod back, and it bends given the weight of the fish. Grab the line or a net and catch your prize. Tenkara is a great rod to start with if you’ve been looking to try fly-fishing. And if you’re looking to recruit someone to join you on the water, Tenkara makes a perfect gift.
