Tenkara USA Sato Triple-Zoom Adjustable Length Fly Fishing Rod

The Tenkara USA® Sato™ rod is named after Mr. Ernest Satow, an avid mountaineer who was the first person to make a written record of tenkara. The Sato is a compact and lightweight tenkara rod. At its shorter length it is perfect for tighter streams, and at its full length it will be ideal when the stream opens up again or when you find a bigger pool to cast your fly.

With several years of design experience under their belt and feedback from users, the folks at Tenkara USA feel they have achieved what we set out to do: give you a rod that is super lightweight, durable, versatile and feels very precise. Plus, they wanted to design a rod that would make it easy to answer, "Which tenkara rod should I get?"

The rod's triple-zoom feature allows you to use the rod at three different lengths. A short rod could come in handy in some cases but for the most part anglers would miss the advantage that comes from fishing with a long tenkara rod. So, Tenkara USA developed a rod that could be the best of both worlds - short when you need it, long when you want it!

The simple yet innovative Keep your Plug ™ system was developed after hearing that no one has ever been able to keep their tenkara rod plug for longer than a year. Now you can remove the plug from the top end of your rod and insert it into the hole at the bottom of your rod. The Rhodo will come with two plugs on the rod; please leave one at home in case you ever need it.

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.
