Tenkara fly fishing originated in Japan. The main difference with 'regular' fly fishing is that the rod does not have a reel. You can see it as a simplified version of fly fishing as it only has the rod, a line, tippet and a fly. The rods are often collapsible (telescopic) so they're extremely portable.
