I have never built a fishing rod, can I build one of your BYO kits?

Yes, all of our kits are beginner friendly.  Some of our kits come with the handle and hardware pieces dry fitted so you know where they have to be glued.  If you can mix epoxy, you can build our kits 🙂  We have several pdf and video instructions in the 'How To' section of our site.



Domestic: USPS Priority 2-3 day

International: USPS Priority International

Processing time: Typically 1-3 days to process and ship

How are my shipping costs calculated: Shipping costs are based on weight of package and your location.  For a shipping estimate, place items into your shopping cart and use our shipping calculator.


What is your warranty?

6 Months on all items we sell, including rod blanks, BYO Kits, furled lines, fly boxes, etc.

NOTE: Our tenkara rod blank warranty covers initial fit and finish and breakage under 'normal' fishing conditions.  It does not cover breakage due to misuse or abuse of the blank, including closing it in a car door, breaking the tip while walking through the woods, or using too heavy of a tippet which causes the fish to break the rod blank instead of breaking the line.  We appreciate your honesty when contacting us for warranty issues.
