Rocky MTN RIO (Rod Kit only)

Rocky MTN RIO (Rod Kit only)

The RIO Tenkara rod was tailor-made for the great and mighty Rio Grande River here in Northern New Mexico. The Rio Grande winds its way through a diverse landscape, encompassing the high desert and deep canyons, ultimately forming the dramatic Rio Grande Gorge near Taos, New Mexico. Our rod is designed to tackle the unique challenges and opportunities presented by this remarkable waterway.

This is where the birth of Rocky MTN Tenkara began, with a man named Estevan. He was a Tenkara enthusiast who aimed to introduce Tenkara to one of New Mexico's prime spots for catching wild browns and cutthroat trout. Some of the finest fishing locations are in the upper sections of the river, accessible only by trail. That's where a RIO Tenkara rod proves perfect for a day of unforgettable fishing.

  • 12 foot (360cm) 5:5 action Tenkara fishing rod
  • Rod weight: 3.8 oz
