Happy Hachi Tenkara RodVote Now!
The Hachi Tenkara Fly Fishing Rod is the little dynamo of our tenkara fly rod line-up. The Hachi just makes you smile – which is why around here, we call it the Happy Hachi. It’s the perfect small stream or small species tenkara fly rod and is ideal for those tight, cramped, overgrown and tiny creeks or waterways. At only 16” long collapsed, this telescoping rod will travel anywhere. The Hachi Tenkara Fly Rod is a mere 6′ 10″ long when extended and has a 5:5 flex profile so it bends but due to its short length, still has enough backbone and “oomph” to guide and land fish in tight places, quickly and efficiently. This rod has a 7.5″ EVA handle to reduce weight but still keep it feeling balanced. With an hourglass-type of contoured handle, you can pick your own sweet spot to grip. Hachi is comparable to a regular 2 – 3wt fly fishing rod. This rod is designed for both adult and youth anglers. It’s perfect for those who want the most delicate small stream rod or fish in super tight places or super small streams, but due to its specs, is the perfect learning tool for children ages 4yr -12 yrs. Includes spare tip, fly rod sock and carbon fiber travel case. Fly Rod Approximate Equivalency (FRAE): 2-3wt
