Fuji EZ Keepers and any of the Ebiras make a great pair. You can keep a rod fully rigged and have it ready to go in seconds. More info...
IMPORTANT! - The button below is for ONE single EZ Keeper, NOT a PAIR! You will need TWO for a tenkara rod. Please be sure to adjust the quantity to TWO.Fuji EZ Keepers (EACH) - $4
These aren't fancy, but they are light weight, adjustable and inexpensive. Four sizes fit different rods and different numbers of rods. Small fits the Suntech Genryuko, Shimotsuke Kiyotaki, Keiryu-X, Pocket Mini and the Nissin tanago rods. It is 1 1/8" in diameter and is adjustable from 12 to 18". The medium fits just about all tenkara rods other than the Shimano 34-38 ZL, Daiwa Expert L rods and the Ito, and will hold two rods. It is 1 1/2" in diameter and adjustable from 16 to 24". The large holds six tenkara rods. It is 2 3/8" in diameter and is adjustable from 16 to 24". The long is 1 1/2" in diameter and adjusts from 32 to 40 inches.
Please note: THE SMALL CASE IS ONLY FOR THE GENRYUKO, TANAGO KORO, KIYOTAKI, KEIRYU-X, POCKET MINI AND SASUKE RODS. IT WILL NOT FIT ANY OTHER ROD.
Some tenkara anglers fish without a net, but having a net allows you to control the fish more quickly and more easily. The Daiwa Keiryu Damo V is a very nice, rigid net that is well suited for tenkara or keiryu fishing. For quite some time I have carried folding nets but I have to say I have come to prefer a rigid net.
Domestic shipping is $4, via USPS First Class Mail (unless ordered with an item that must go via Priority Mail, and which has a higher shipping charge). The charge is added to your order automatically.
Please note: All packages are shipped via USPS. If you have a PO Box, please list ONLY the PO Box in your address, not the PO Box and your street address.
The charge for international shipping depends on the destination country, the weight of the package, the overall length of the package and the value of the package.
International purchases may be subject to import duties and taxes. I cannot keep track of all import regulations in all countries written in all languages. Understanding and paying import duties and taxes is the responsibility of the buyer.
TenkaraBum.com no longer ships to the UK. The new VAT regulations are too onerous for a one-man shop that rarely ships anything to the UK anyway. I apologize.
The US Postal Service has suspended all shipments to Australia. There are two alternatives. One is the same price as the USPS had been (as calculated at checkout) but may take 3-4 weeks. The other is UPS, which is considerably faster (3-5 days), but also considerably more expensive. If you want the faster, UPS shipment, I will send an invoice for the required amount.
Canadian buyers have the option to prepay import duty and VAT (which also eliminates the CAN$9.96 Canada Post charge for collecting the import duty and VAT). The prepayment option costs a flat US$6.95, which can yield a substantial savings for larger purchases. This option is only for packages under $400 in value AND 24" or less in length.
