Despite its beautiful flowers sometimes anglers find themselves losing flies to the overreaching branches of the rhododendron. Tenkara developed the Rhodo, a rod that can be fished short when things get tight, or longer when the stream opens up.

The Tenkara USA Rhodo is the lightest feeling tenkara rod made. With several years of design experience under their belts and feedback from users, Tenkara has achieved what they set out to do: give you a rod that is super light-weight, durable, versatile and feels very precise.

The Rhodo has two patent-pending features:
Triple-zoom: this allows you to use the rod at three different lengths - 8'10", 9'9", and 10'6" (270, 297, or 320 cm). Since Tenkara USA began, people have been asking for a sub-9ft tenkara rod. They felt that a short rod could come in handy in some cases but for the most part anglers would miss the advantage that comes from fishing with a long tenkara rod. So, they developed a rod that could be the best of both worlds: short when you need it, long when you want it!
Keep Your Plug system (patent pending): After hearing that no one has ever been able to keep their tenkara rod plug for longer than a year, Tenkara decided to find a solution for you to never lose your plug again. They designed the “Keep Your Plug” system. Next time you go fishing, remove the plug from the top end of your rod and insert it into the hole at the bottom of your rod. The Rhodo will come with two plugs on the rod; please leave one at home in case you ever need it.

Action: We're phasing out the Tenkara rod index system. We have decided that we will make the best tenkara rods around and the flex of a tenkara rod is not a crucial aspect of selecting a tenkara rod. If you have been tenkara fishing for sometime and want a frame of reference, the Rhodo is a medium action rod.

    Sweet small creek rod

    Posted by TenkaraUtah on Sep 25th 2017

    This will fish any stream with overhead branches. A great all around rod for smaller water. Super lightweight and sweet for backpacking. Not as long as most tenkara rods but equally as effective.
