There are a few knots that are more or less specific to tenkara. They are very easy to learn. Though this video is a bit long it goes into detail on how to exactly tie each knot: how to tie the tapered line to the tenkara rod, how to tie the level line to the rod, how to tie tippet to level line and tippet to fly, and how to use the line holder.

Where can I get the line holders
Mike, line holders are here: Tenkara Gear for Big Fish
hey folks, great info here! Do you have a video like the one above, but showing how to tie on two or even three flies?
Jim, we don’t. But, you’d do the same knot as the tippet to level line connection and slip it onto the hook of the fly, and it will sit on the hook bend.
Why don’t you compile the videos and offer them for sell?
Looks like a.good way to revitalize my fishing Jones.
Need a Midwest rep?
Hi Mark, thanks. Not at the moment.
Never seen this fishing concept before, looks interesting.
Had you considered manufacturing a hiker’s staff which can double as a fly (and bait) rod for pared- down widerness backpackers ?
Catch your own supper on the move ?
I ‘ve been considering building something like this, this for years, but adding the handle reel-seating and tranporting even a small fly- reel make the concept cumbersome.
Are there any paper publications I can read. ?
I know of a stream, very overgrown, in SW England which would be difficult to fish in a conventional fashion. Full of darting summer trout. Which outfit would you advise ?
