The "Chico" Care Package

The "Chico" Care Package

The "Chico Rod" was born as autumn leaves turned, inspired by the moment our renowned 12 ft Rio rod brushed the falling foliage while casting. It's a 7-9 foot zoom rod that captures the essence of New Mexico's small stream brown trout fishing and high-elevation hikes.

What sets the Chico Rod apart is its distinctive color scheme, a departure from the typical black with red or metallic banding found in Tenkara rods. Instead, it pays homage to New Mexico's rich history of unique license plates. The rod's adobe hue and straw gold rings transport you to the days of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, the Spanish explorer in search of the fabled Seven Cities of Gold.

Remaining true to our roots, we're dedicated to expanding the possibilities within the Tenkara industry.

Key Features:

  • Package Contents: Each Chico Rod package includes the rod, a protective rod sock, a convenient rod tube, and additional final tip sections. We understand the frustration of a day cut short due to a broken rod.
  • Rod Length: The Chico Rod offers a flexible 7/8/9 foot zoom configuration, ensuring comfort and capability for various fishing situations.
  • Action: It boasts a quick 6:4 action, delivering a harmonious blend of stability and responsiveness—a perfect balance for any angler.
  • Weight and Size: The rod alone weighs a mere 2.5 oz and is a compact 18 3/4 inches when collapsed.
  • Weight of the rod, rod sock and rod tube is 9 oz and 20" in length. 
  • Shipping: Enjoy free shipping on Chico Rods and rod kits within the lower 48 continental United States, including the District of Columbia.

This Kit will also include:

  • River Peak 4.0 Level Line (50m)
  • Starter Fly pack 
  • 3 Dry flies
  • 3 Stimulator flies
  • 6 Nymphs
  • One roll of 5x Tippet
Everything you need to cast for the first time.

      The Chico Rod is more than a fishing tool; it's a tribute to New Mexico's history and a promise of an exceptional Tenkara experience.
