I am a pretty devout fly fisherman. My passion is blue line native brook trout streams. Most of them offer little room for casting, so often I only have two to three feet of fly line off the rod, and 7-8 feet of leader/tippet. I am interested in streamlining this, and Tenkara seems like the ticket. I am thinking level line so I can cut a selection of line lengths. I am set for flies, and am good with leaders and tippet. What I need are some rod recommendations. I would like to go with a shorter rod, or one of the adjustable length rods. I will likely buy two, the Rhodo from Tenkara USA fits the bill. 8'10"-10'6" It is $215. I don't mind the price too much, just wondering if there is something else comparable for a lower cost that someone could endorse. I have a ridiculous amount of money invested in the 6 fly rods that I currently have, but this purchase is for a very specialized purpose. Rod action is not of great importance on a stream that is less than ten feet wide, shrouded in rhododendron and hemlock trees, and where a trophy fish is likely 10 inches.
So if someone can suggest a more middle of the road rod that fits, I would really appreciate it. Thanks
