Tenkara, which means "From Heaven or From the Skies," is an ancient form of fishing in Japan dating back to the 8th or 9th century B.C. This 5-piece raw bamboo Tenkara rod, made in Japan by an unknown rod maker, is 15 feet long—fairly typical for this rod type. The unique carved handle, part of which is seen here, also served as a case for the unassembled rod.
