I've been looking around at Tenkara rods for some time now. I had looked at them pretty hard before we went to Colorado last year. I like that they pack down in such a small footprint. One small rod tube, some tippet, and a small fly box and you're set. I purchased the Tenkara Series rod from Wetfly. The thing I liked the most was you got a nice rod tube with this kit. None of the other I saw came with one. The kit contained the rod, tube, rod sock, level line, tippet, and a furled leader. I'll chuck the level line, and tippet, and replace with RIO. I did make up short floating section out of some older 4wt fly line. I also purchased two hook keepers from Cabelas. These are great for wrapping your line around when traveling up and down the stream. The piece I made up with twelve foot long. Should be a lot of fun, and something different to try. There are some good video's on Youtube.
