DRAGONtail Talon Compact Tenkara Rod


Product Overview

DRAGONtail's ultra-compact Talon rod is ideal for fishing by bike!  This rod collapses down to 17" (compared to 21" or more for a typical tenkara rod) but extends to nearly 11 feet and retains the light, sensitive feel that many "mini" rods on the market lack.  Zip it into your frame bag or strap it to your handlebar roll and be ready to wet your line in any fishy-looking hole you come across. 

The Talon is well-suited for smaller water and fish under 15" but can handle larger fish also.  It is also a great choice for young anglers because of its compact size, manageable extended length and low price.

Add a Starter Kit to your order and you'll be ready to fish!  We recommend an 11ft line for the Talon.  Want to customize your setup?  Not sure which rod or line to choose?  We're happy to help!  Give us a call or email!
