Covid-19 Announcement

Most international flights have been cancelled.

There is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.

Shipments to overseas buyers will take longer than normal - possibly much longer. Patience is a virtue - especially in fishing.

Used Rods

Daiwa Enshou LL36SF (used)

I rarely sell my used rods, but I've been thinking of upgrading my Enshou LL36SF to a Daiwa Master L LL36 for more than a little while now, and a Black Friday Sale seemed to be a good time to attract people looking for bargains.

This, I think, truly is a bargain. The Enshou LL36SF sold new for $300. The current Expert LL36, which is a very similar rod, sells for $285 (thanks to a better dollar/yen exchange rate). I am offering my LL36SF, which remains in excellent condition, for $200.

The Daiwa Enshou LL36SF is a moderately soft (15 penny), full flex tenkara rod. The casting stroke is as smooth as you could want, but is a little different than most other tenkara rods.

The Daiwa level line rods all have hollow tips, which are a bit firmer than the solid tips on most rods.  That changes the casting dymanic a bit and makes it a little easier to achieve a tight loop cast.

The Enshou LL36SF has been one of my all-time favorites. If you want a second opinion, I will refer you to Dr. Tom Davis.

The rod comes with the original rod sock and a Fuji KTC-12 rod cap in place of the original tip plug. No case.

Domestic shipping is $10 via USPS Priority Mail (2-3 day delivery).

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. Packages under 24" long and under $400 in value will go via USPS First Class International. Packages over 24" or over $400 will go via USPS Priority Mail International. The international shipping charge will be calculated at checkout.

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 are the responsibility of the buyer.

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.
