Tenkara Guide Tips #4A
Maintaining a Tenkara Rod
In the last installment of the Tenkara Guide Tips #4 The Care and Feeding of a Tenkara Rod we discussed how not to break a tenkara rod. Today we are going to take a look at how to properly maintain a tenkara rod if it gets wet or seems to stick when it is being extended or collapsed. This procedure can be done at home or riverside. I prefer doing this while I am home as there are fewer chances of losing parts, as long as the kitten does not make it into the TenkaraGrasshopper Man Cave!

Tenkara Tips #4
The Care and Feeding of a Tenkara Rod
The tenkara rod is an amazing tool for catching fish of all kinds. There are very few limits to what kinds of fish an angler can land with a tenkara rod but there are some caveats to the care and feeding of your tenkara rod.
Just like anything out there that is manufactured, if handled improperly a tenkara rod can and will break. Sadly, I have seen it happen more than once and ninety percent of the time it has been operator error rather than manufacturer defect.
