A simpler way of fly fishing.

After a three-mile hike into Glacier National Park, the trees open up to revel cascading waterfalls and an endless array of small streams all flowing into a mirror-like lake. Quickly, you spot a few small fish feeding at the surface and undue the Tenkara Iwana 12ft - Set from your daypack. Moments later, you find yourself wading ankle-deep into the water where a small stream empties out into the pristine lake. The fish may be under 12-inches, but with this ultra-lightweight 6:4 action rod, you're ready for awesome battles.

The lightest in the Tenkara rod line-up, the Iwana is ideal for those seeking very very delicate casting and for fishing smaller streams. The telescopic closure means the Iwana collapses down for super-easy transport when you backpack into the backcountry, travel, or hike to high-mountain streams or lakes. Thanks to its high-quality carbon fiber material, the Iwana has strong, durable components that last.


For convenience, the Iwana Set includes a Tenkara Iwana 12ft rod, a spool of tenkara 3.5 level line in either high-visibility pink or orange, a tenkara line holder, and three flies. Due to the nature of Tenkara-style fly fishing, a fly reel is not needed. This traditional Japanese method of fly fishing only uses a rod, line, and fly, which makes it particularly well-suited for stream fishing and for anyone looking for a simpler way to fly-fish.
