Tenkara is the Japanese method of fly fishing, which uses only a rod, line and fly. It shines in mountain streams, where the long rod and light line provide the best possible fly presentation. It's also effective in a variety of waters, such as alpine lakes, or urban ponds for panfish and bass. Tenkara is the ideal setup for anyone looking for an intuitive and fun way to fly fish or anyone teaching kids the art of fly fishing without the complexities. It's also great to take along on a backpacking fishing trip.

Tenkara USA® is the first company to introduce tenkara outside of Japan. Founded in 2009 by Daniel W. Galhardo, Tenkara USA is a fully independent company, based in Boulder, Colorado. Their vision for is to introduce tenkara outside of Japan, to open the doors to people who like the idea of fly fishing but have always found western fly fishing too complex, and to excite experienced fly anglers through an undeniably effective but simpler approach to fly fishing.

Through frequent visits to Japan, Tenkara USA has developed very strong relationships with tenkara masters. They rely heavily on their knowledge and feedback to ensure the products they make and information they share are of highest quality and true to tenkara.
