A lot of people have asked me for a Tenkara Starter Kit. I hadn't put one together until now for two reasons. 1) people who have fly fishing experience need less "new stuff" than someone who has never been fly fishing and has nothing at all, and 2) even though I've found a number of very nice rods, which people really like (including beginners), none were quite what I was looking for as the basis for a kit.

I've finally found a good rod for a starter kit, and decided to make the basic kit what every tenkara fisher needs, with an add-on kit for the people new to fly fishing.


If you've been thinking of trying tenkara but didn't know which rod or which line or what flies to get, I've made the choosing as simple as the fishing.
