A lot of times the included "accessories" on a purchase like this are nearly worthless. That wasn't the case, as far as I could tell. I received the kit, drove out to a local creek, set everything up, and caught my first fish within 30 minutes. I'm pretty stoked, and am back to buy another set for my girlfriend. Very happy with the pole as well as everything that came with it!
All was well with the order and delivery. My only complaint is the quality and usefulness of line provided. It has proven to be totally inappropriate for fly casting. The line supplied turns the product into a 12’ cane pole.
I bought the 12' Tenkara starter rod in mid May 2019 for a backpack trip into the Selway River. My brother bought one too. We had a total blast catching Cutties at a creek coming into the river. Loved the simplicity of the rod and ability to drop cast. I used it on Copper Creek and caught plenty of Brookies on a beautiful July night . This rod is so dang fun! I had a fantastic day on Soda Butte Creek outside Cooke City, MT in mid - August catching Yellowstone Cutthroat trout. That was probably my best day on a stream ever. It was like a spiritual experience and I so want to go back and do it again. I can't say enough about this rod and would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to try Tenkara fishing. I broke a section last week on a creek in SW MT and already I have a replacement section en route. Great customer service from Heidi in NY. Thank you for making a great affordable rod and allowing me to enjoy fly fishing in God's great creation!
