The Little Mighty is influenced by high-end Japanese style telescopic poles. There are 2 primary groups of anglers that use this style pole. First it is popular on the west coast and Hawaii as a rod used to catch fish in the surf. The second group is trout anglers in the western US that use the Tenkara style rods for fly fishing. Made of hi-modulus graphite and a 17″ collapsed length these are great for backpacking into hard-to-reach fishing destinations. Ranging in lengths from 10 feet to 24 1/2 feet.
