Nissin Zerosum Oni Tenkara 450

by Terry Farmer

I recently got to try out my new Oni 450. My wife and I went up to the Rio Costilla area in Northern New Mexico. I fished the river and Latir Lake #3 with the rod. This rod is extraordinary. It's robust, the section joints are all reinforced. It's light in hand. It casts itself. As some other reviewers have reported, the rod is full flex so the entire rod loads for casting. This rod has changed my approach to tenkara casting. If you can't tell, I'm STOKED about this rod!

"There is a time to go long. There is a time to go short. And there is a time to go fishing." - Jesse Livermore


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
