Great Stepping Ston -
Great package to start off with. Good stepping stone for those who are new to fly fishing.
Simple Perfection -
Orvis does it again! My Tenkara rod has become my go to fly rod. First trip out I caught some very nice brook trout.
Tenkara USA -
Received the package without delay. Took it out the next day. I watched the online videos on knots and assembly which are VERY helpful and was all set. I had a fun time and took it to the suburban and in untying (eventhough I thought I did as the video said), broke about a 1/4 inch section. Saddened, i went home and contacted Tenkara to see if I could get more Lillian and replacement tip. They were fantastic to work with me and decided they had a faulty part and would not charge me for the replacement and I requested express delivery and in a couple of days was again able to assemble easily and fish!! What a great partnership -- Orvis and Tenkara. I could not be happier and would highly recommend to beginners to learn to cast, use flies and for the advanced to really learn to get in "touch" with their line. It certainly helped me the next trip with my tradition rod and reel--higher catch rate!! Thanks ORVIS
Great Deal! -

The outfit includes nearly all the necessities to rig your rod, minus the tippet. Set-up is simple and takes little time (assuming you know the correct knots). Casting shows this rod's accuracy, reach, and stealth. All movements seem to be telegraphed down the line right to your hand. I came from a 10 year background in Western Fly fishing, and now I can say I will use both Western and Tenkara on a regular basis. The simplicity and portability of Tenkara is what draws me to make this purchase, and I am not disappointed.
Great introduction to Tenkara -

I've been looking for a different approach to fly fishing suited for the small streams and ponds near my home. Tenkara fits the bill perfectly, and this package is a great way to start. Everything you need is included, and the instructions provided are easy to understand and quite helpful. I opened the package, attached the line, tied on one of the included flies and was catching fish in minutes. The rod is very lightweight and responsive. The sections extend smoothly, fit tightly and release easily. Tenkara technique is intuitive. If you keep the handful of helpful pointers in mind, by the end of your first outing you can make delicate, accurate presentations that would take hours of practice to master with conventional Western fly casting. I'm looking forward to lots of fun using this equipment on small streams and ponds.

Rekindle your love of fishing -

This is a great way to get into tenkara fishing. It's extremely productive in higher-gradient streams and will teach you how to become a better tight-quarters caster and nymph angler. The booklet included in this set is excellent.
Trendy but not much else -

Trendy but not very versatile. If you want to stand out in the crowd buy it. Also good in very select conditions for very young children before they can get basic casting with fly rod down. If your child is already 4 or 5 years old and reasonable coordinated skip it. If you aren't into the fashion show with what you wear fishing then this attention grabber probable isn't for you either. Doesn't outperform a descent fly rod in any situation other than the toddler age group.

Nice assortment of needed tackle! Quite different type of casting from traditional flyfishing! Easy to assemble and use. A lot of fun for a small price. Very portable. Tenkara flies provided are adequate and very easy to tye at the fly bench.
