Very nice - I have a Tenkara rod I traded for several years ago. I've fished it a couple times and I caught some fish but just haven't had a chance to really explore. I suppose it will have to wait a bit until the mtn streams of New England for brook trout. I even went as far as buying a few tenkara style flies just because they look cool.

Have you looked into this? I have one and love it for small stuff, easy carry with the case and the switch to spinner is effortless.

I'll echo the positive Tenkara sentiments. An absolutely wonderful and relaxing way to fish small streams. It's so simple and I can pack my Tenkara rod in a fanny pack. Check out the Tenkara Rod Company in Idaho. Super nice people to deal with and were very responsive to all my silly emailed questions before i bought from them. Great customer service after the sale too.

How small & light would you like to go? From left to right:
3-weight reel on a 7ft-8" (To give you a relative idea of sizes involved, this being the large reel, the spool is only 2-5/8" outside diameter
2-weight on a 7ft
1-weight on a 6ft-7"
0-weight on a 5ft-5" And yes, even the teeny-tiny toy will cast 30+ feet with little effort.

But honestly, this is what's called having too much time on your hands when you're too far from the fishing smile
