After a three mile hike into Glacier National Park, the trees open up to revel cascading waterfalls and an endless array of small streams all flowing into a mirror like lake. Quickly, you spot a few small fish feeding at the surface and undue the Tenkara Iwana 12ft Set from your daypack. Moments later, you find yourself wading ankle deep into the water where a small stream empties out into the pristine lake. The fish may be under 12 inches, but with this ultra lightweight 6:4 action rod, you're ready for awesome battles. The lightest in the Tenkara rod line up, the Iwana is ideal for those seeking very very delicate casting and for fishing smaller streams. The telescopic closure means the Iwana collapses down for super easy transport when you backpack into the backcountry, travel, or hike to high mountain streams or lakes. Thanks to its high quality carbon fiber material, the Iwana has strong, durable components that last. For convenience, the Iwana Set includes a Tenkara Iwana 12ft rod, a spool of tenkara 3. 5 level line in either high visibility pink or orange, a tenkara line holder, and three flies. Due to the nature of Tenkara style fly fishing, a fly reel is not needed. This traditional Japanese method of fly fishing only uses a rod, line, and fly, which makes it particularly well suited for stream fishing and for anyone looking for a simpler way to fly fish.
