Tenkara USA Iwana Fly Rod DetailsThe Tenkara USA Iwana Fly Rod is the lightest fly rod they offer. Ideal for those seeking very very delicate casting and for fishing smaller streams, the Iwana feels extremely light-weight and all sensations are enhanced when hooking a fish. The progressive taper, ultra-light weight, and tip action provides for great battles, even when hooking the smaller fish. Quality and strength are by no means compromised, and landing large fish is not unheard of (8lbs mentioned on a forum thread!). If you are going to streams where 12 inch trout are trophies this is the rod.
This is the exact same rod Tenkara has been selling from the start, but based on feedback the action of these rods have been revised to a 6:4, it's a very light rod, with a delicate and precise casting feel.
These rods have a beautiful "glossy carbon" finish, where you can see the high-quality carbon fiber material through a nice glossy finish.
FAQ - What kind of rod is right for me?
Tenkara USA currently has 6 rods in its lineup. Each rod was designed to be true to the tenkara tradition and feel great for small stream fly angling. While every angler may have a different preference and need, try not to overthink your choice, Tenkara USA designed each rod to feel great while fishing in small streams.
Things to consider:
- What type of line should I use?
You should start with the "Traditional Tenkara Line". The traditional line is made to cast very well with any of the Tenkara rods. It is quick to setup and provides a nice delicate presentation. The Traditional Tenkara Line is 10.5 ft. The Level Line is an indicator line that helps see strikes that might not be on the surface. A 8"-12" section of level line is usually sufficient. After the 10.5 ft traditional line, 8"-12" level line, you'll use approximately 4 ft of 5x or smaller tippet. The 'Girth Hitch' is the knot used to attach the line to the rod tip. Be sure a single overhand knot has been tied in the short section of line (red lillian at the rod tip) attached to the tip of the rod.
- I can't find the soft rod tip (red lillian at the rod tip). Occasionally the very tip of the rod may have slide into the thicker segments and the red lilian may have gotten stuck inside. Simply open the bottom screw cap, remove the tip of the rod, and reinsert it.
