Topo Designs x Tenkara Rod Co $250

Simple functionality was the guiding principle used when creating the Topo Designs x Tenkara Rod Co product collaboration. The two brands harnessed their mutual love for getting people outdoors and developed a kit that gives both the new and established Tenkara fisherman everything he/she needs in a small, lightweight package.

The Topo Designs x Tenkara Rod Co kit includes everything you need to fish:

From Tenkara Rod Co. – 10.5 ft medium action Tenkara Rod (The Sierra), Rod Tube, Rod Sock, 10.5 ft. furled Tenkara line, wood line holder, 3 hand tied Tenkara flies, and 1 spool of 5x tippet.

From TOPO Designs – Minimalist fishing bag and line wallet.

ROD: This rod is based on Tenkara’s popular Sierra rod model.  Fishing is supposed to be fun, and this rod was developed as its small to medium-sized Tenkara rod. Great for fishing streams, creeks, smaller rivers, ponds, and lakes. And even though it’s not the biggest Tenkara rod it can still handle the occasional bigger fish. Lifetime warranty through Tenkara Rod Co.
