TFO Soft Hackle

From 245,00 EUR Incl. 24% VAT

TFO Soft Hackle is a classic Japanese tenkara rod, which have been used for fishing mountain streams since 17th century. Tenkara fishing style is a simple fly fishing method which is based on undisturbed presentation and accurate casting.

Used line length is about the same as rod's length. TenkaraBum's Chris Steward recommends to use for example RIO Powerflex Tippet in 0,12 - 0,14 thickness, but any other standard monofilament fishing line will work as well.

Tenkara rods are normally fished with one fly, either traditional Japanese fly patterns called kebari or normal western flies. Fishing style differs from traditional fly fishing in a way that the casts are short and accurate. Main thing is in the presentation and how you swim the fly for fish.

Soft Hackle is a telescope rod. It has a long cork grip. Blank is decorated with traditional bamboo texture. Rod sock has a line rack where the leader can be mounted. Rod is equipped with two tip sections.

Tenkara rod is easy to carry because of it's small size and telescope feature. Handy choice for fishing trips when presentation and accuracy is the most important factor for success and fishing pleasure. Suitable for fishing any species that swim in streams.
