Ordering Replacement Parts

This page has been moved.

Before giving you the link, though, I have to stress that I do not carry and cannot get parts for

Any spinning rod

Any bait casting rod

Any fly rod

Any surf rod

Any boat rod

Any rod sold by:
Any European tenkara rod company
Badger Tenkara
DragonTail Tenkara
Fountainhead Tenkara
Tanuki Tenkara

Zen Tenkara
Any tenkara company that popped up within the last few weeks that I haven't heard of yet.

The only parts I can get are parts for tenkara rods, keiryu rods and seiryu rods that are made for the Japanese domestic market and sold in Japan.

For spinning and casting rods bought outside of Japan, I would recommend:



For tenkara, keiryu or seiryu rod parts for rods sold on TenkaraBum.com. the link is: https://www.tenkarabum.com/replacement-parts.html

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


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