We had a chance to connect with the fine folks at Tenkara Rod Co and get the skinny on their up-coming Swift Campout to a local creek. Fly fishing is one of those pass times that fits bike-camping perfectly–read on and you’ll see why we’re especially stoked to be a Tenkara Rod Co. dealer. What’s more, you’ll have a chance to win their amazing goods through Swift Campout.


 At Tenkara Rod Co we love the outdoors and we love to fish. Tenkara gives people a chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors while fishing with a lightweight packable rod. It does not matter if you are new to the sport or maybe you can shadow cast better than Brad Pitt, tenkara is fun for a skill levels.

We have four different tenkara rods; The Teton, The Sawtooth, The Cascade and The Owyhee, all named after beautiful mountain ranges that a full of fishing opportunities. The rods range in lengths from 8 to 13 feet long so you can fish everything from high mountain lakes to small streams and big rivers. The rods collapse down as small as 18 inches and the Cascade weighs in at just over 2 ounces. The most popular are the rod packages, in a package you receive the rod, rod tube, a hand tied tenkara line, line holder, and 3 flies to get started.


We saw the simplicity in tenkara and figured fishing does not need to be complicated. A friend let me try his tenkara rod and I quickly learned how much fun it is to hook and land fish using tenkara. The rods are very sensitive so even hooking small fish makes for a good fight.   We are not just fish bums. At Tenkara Rod Co the great outdoors plays a role in nearly everything we like to do. Tenkara Rod Co is gathering up friends and family, packing up bikes and rods to head up-river for a Swift Campout. The actual name of the creek on the map is a derogatory term that also means “female dog”. So they’re are going to (female dog) creek! Tenkara2
