I have fished Tenkara for the last couple of years in the Smokies in additon to my standard 5wt and my new 2 wt. I have found I have just as good as luck with the standard Smokies flys I use on western rigs. However you can find a selection thru Tenkara USA which also offers the rods thru Orvis which I imagine LRO has access to also. The drifts can be easier and put you in currents behind rocks that are sometimes hard to get with standard set ups but I enjoy all methods and change up to keep life interesting. Good Luck with it!
