Bamboo tenkara Rod Cases

How to take the top off a bamboo rod case the right way. As a result of this question being asked we thought maybe we should compiled this video that most of all shows you the right way of taking the top off and consequently how easy it is.


Tying a line to a tenkara rod

The knot you’ll probably become very familiar with is this one. This is probably the easiest one used to tie a line on to a tenkara rod. Therefore making things a little more comfortable when out on the river. What seems like an impossible thing to join up and while you may have fished before and are use to knots, this way of joining two bits of line together seems like it will never work. Most of all it really is a very effective knot hence the many hours I’ve spent on a river it has never let me down.

Developed over a long time this fly has proven itself time and time again.

The technique is simple, on fast flows just let it ride, on slower water raise your tip and let it dive back down. Depending on the depth of the water you can let it hit the river bed then bring it back to just below the film then let it dive again.

As far as your cast goes, first of all you’ll need to be aware of the weighted hook. As a result it is slightly different than a normal fly but you’ll get use to it rather quickly.



We’ll be adding more of these videos as we can – please keep checking back – or try our Youtube page here
