    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.
