Fishing with a Tenkara outfit 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! If you can get the fly out into the water you are casting the right way. The key to Tenkara is finding out what works for you. Your Temple Fork Outfitters tenkara rod comes in a storage bag with integrated line holder and a spare rod tip and second section. Stop by the shop and learn more about this unique way of fishing.
Any fly can be used with your tenkara rod from dries to nymph. Ask Craig or Tommy about the special flies tied for use with the tenkara rod.
Purchase the rod, line, flies or book individually. Or, pick up every thing that you need to get started in the sport of Tenkara Fly Fishing by purchasing a Tenkara Fly Fishing kit. The kit includes a rod, line, leader, flies, an instructional book and a starting guide.
With A Master's Guide to Building a Bamboo Fly Rod open on the kitchen table, Amelia completed her first rod at the age of 22. Her effort impressed Daryll Whitehead. He immediately began teaching her the ways of constructing a fine rod.
Amelia believes each rod is a unique entity, taking on a life of its own in a body of work where every part is perfect.
It quickly became apparent to Gabe that although the bamboo itself is alive, not all bamboo rods are created equal. It's the maker's mind and hands working in unity that creates a truly unique work of art.
Tufts & Batson rods are made here in Maplewood, Missouri by Amelia Tufts & Gabe Batson. Their quality rods are agile, light and strong. You can contact them at 314.282.0359 or visit their website
