Vail Valley Anglers


Originating in Japan, Tenkara is a minimalist form of fly fishing that was first introduced outside of Japan by Tenkara USA. Involving only a rod, line, and fly, Tenkara can be a nice way to get started with fly fishing, and can also be appreciated by experienced anglers looking to simplify, and by backpackers who will appreciate the lightweight, telescoping design of the Tenkara rod.

Tenkara Line Holder
"Tenkara Line Holder "Yes""

Tenkara Line holders really work! I was skeptical until I started using one. Storing leaders rigged with flies, weights, and indicators attached are no problem at all. I'm using Tenkara Line Holders for my rod and reel rigs too.

Tenkara Sato Triple-Zoom Fly Rod

Totally fun. I recommend trying the Tenkara USA Sato if you're ready for a new fly fishing challenge. The Sato has worked well for me on Eagle River this winter. The best thing is there are no guides to clear of ice. Also, I've found that keeping the rod tip low and to the side works best for fighting fish. Landed a fat 16 inch Cutty on Christmas with my Sato!
