Tenkara is the traditional Japanese method of fly-fishing, which uses only a rod, furled or level line, tippet and a fly. The joy of Tenkara fishing is the simplicity.
Tenkara rods could be comparable to most light rods used in cone pole fishing and in fly-fishing and are considered slow action, or soft action rods. Tenkara Action describes how many bottom sections are stiffer and how many tip sections are more flexible when pressure is put on the tip of the rod. It shows how much the rod can bend and how quickly it can return to its neutral position. The construction material and construction method of a rod affects the stiffness of the blank, the blank's ability to react and therefore its action. Flexibility and Ultra Light, Soft Action allows you to see the most delicate and sensitive fish bites. Power helps you actually fight the big fighter and land it much quicker that with other rods.
'UL' - Ultra Light - 5:5 indicates 5 bottom sections are stiffer and 5 tip sections bend more easily. Rod feel more delicate when casting because of an extra flexibility, it is great for slower casting and can hold smaller fish up to 1kg, but landing a larger fish will be more challenging using this rod.
You can choose the length of the rod based on the places where you will fish. Longer length allows you to fish in a wide area of the stream, on the other side of the stream or allow you to reach a longer distance without changing the fishing spot. Longer rods will give you better leverage over the line and the fly and require smaller movement by angler to set the hook for effective striking. Using a longer rod will also give you a huge advantage when playing fish, keeping it away from snags.

Ultra-Light Action Tenkara rods can be used to catch wide range of species, especially they are great for fishing
Brook Trout with a dry fly on a streams or rivers. They are excellent rods for species like
How to land a fish.
To land a small fish you just need simply raise the rod high to slide fish gently into landing net range. Catching big fish is always very challenging especially with the light tackle. Fighting the large fish is very enjoyable and requires a lot of patience and some knowledge. With a larger fish you will need to follow to a rhythm dictated by the fish, you must keep your rod low, at 45 degrees or less to avoid breaking tip or top sections. Lifting the tip straight up will just encourage the fish to fight harder and to start swimming off at high speed. Try to use sideways pressure, moved rod with the fish, follow the fish movements and kept the rod angle low. Getting the fish from the bottom into open water is a winning half of the battle and once you've moved it away from any danger areas, such as reeds ringing an island, you can just keep applying steady pressure until the fish tires. Be patient; just let the fish tire itself and wait until it comes up and takes a gulp of air and then gently slide it over your landing net.
Take a good care of your rod.
Never lift your catch, always play with the fish and use landing net
to land it. Never raise your rod high with the large fish, keep your handle angle at about 45 degrees or less. Always
extend and insert
telescopic sections very gently, try do not extend them too forcibly, try to keep it off the ground to avoid dirt getting into the joints. Wipe it clean with a cloth before taking it down so you don't jam dirt into the joint, rinse rod with freshwater after using it in saltwater as soon as you can. Always remember to
take a good care of your rods
and they will work for you for a very long time and will bring you large amount of catches and a huge amount of great emotions. More great emotions - longer and healthier is your life.
