Big Fish. Big Rivers. Big Smiles
Have you heard? Tenkara is useless for big fish. Maybe you also feel it can’t work on big rivers? These are sensible concerns – but the good news is that Japanese anglers have been tackling big fish on fixed-line rods for generations. The joy of casting a long, delicate tenkara line with a long, supple rod is easy to appreciate. So too is the smile you get from turning a heavy fish in powerful flow using the length and strength of a Honryu tenkara rod.
Available in 4-m and 4.5-m models, the Tenkara Centre “Honryu” range is made using bespoke Japanese woven carbon-fibre. They load easily with lines as light as a Japanese # 2.5 and recover quickly without rebounding. Yet our Honryu rods also possess the power to handle trout in the 3 – 4lb class in comfort. They will partner perfectly with either level fluorocarbon lines or our Fujino tapered lines between 4.5 m and 9 m long.
Order one now and take control on your favourite big trout, big river venue. The Honryu 450 comes with a fabric rod bag and protective clear polycarbonate tube with the option to buy a high quality woven carbon rod tube separately.
