Thank Yu for the videos. Tenka4ra fishing for the 1st time next week. Long time Fly fisherman. This looks so simple and like so much fun. Can’t wait. Your videos are very helpful.
Please explain how Tenkara fly fishing is different from any other technique. I am new to the sport and haven’t purchased equipment yet.
Hi Donna, in tenkara we use only a rod, line and fly, but no reel. Typically we are using rods that are a bit longer, and a fixed length of line (about the same length as the rod to start) is tied to the tip of the rod. Casting is also a bit easier. The videos in this page may do a good job showing what it looks like. If you have any questions please let us know! Thanks for writing.
