The Starter Package includes: Shadowfire 360 Tenkara Rod, Rod Cloth, Rod Tube, 3 Flies, 12.5 foot Furled Line (made by Moonlit Fly Fishing), 1 Foam Line Holders, and 27 yard spool of Tippet. The Shadowfire tenkara rod is a great choice for water where the fish are mostly under 17 inches. The Shadowfire can handle larger fish than 17 inches but it is designed for mid-sized fish. The soft casting action of this rod will help you cast more naturally and accurately. If you are using level line, you will want size #3 or #3.5 with this rod for best performance. We designed the handle to fit the hand more comfortably to reduce hand fatigue and to give you more casting control. You will most likely be pleased with the feel of this rod handle. The matte black color keeps the rod from reflecting the sun and possibly alerting the fish of your presence. Despite being matte black, this rod is very appealing to the eyes and has a quality finish. Although this rod is not necessarily designed as a big fish rod it can get the job done if you have room to move. We have landed a 23 inch rainbow with this rod, it helped that I was using a longer line when I caught it. You are going to love this rod.HIGH QUALITY ROD – The Shadowfire 12-ft Tenkara Rod is comparable to other mid-tier rods that are priced much higher.
