Tenkara USA Amago

by Mark Roberts
(Portland, OR)

I have had my Amago for three years, and mainly used it on larger rivers, like the Deschutes here in Oregon, holding a variety of larger fish. I have found it to be a very adaptable rod for more traditional Tenkara style fishing as well as using much longer and heavier lines like 1-2 wt floating lines for fishing on the swing, in lengths out to 40' + tippet. It worked flawlessly for dancing with and landing a 17" Silver Salmon in Washington. I would highly recommend for this type of river and larger fish.

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.
