29. Mini Sawtooth Rod by Tenkara Rod Co.
There are few things more frustrating to the backcountry angler than stumbling upon a clear and clean trout stream when you’re without your rod and reel. Pack a tenkara package like this one from Tenkara Rod Co. and you’ll never miss an opportunity to slay some fish. The 13.5″, 1.1-oz, carbon-fiber rod telescopes out to reach 8’8”, and can handle any fish up to 1lb using Japanese tenkara fishing techniques. ($179, tenkararodco.com)
