Tenkara Traditional Line To Rod1. Open braided loop at the end of the tenkara traditional fly line and fold it back over the line.
2-3. Grasp the fly line through the open loop and pull it up a little ways through the loop.
4. Insert lilian through the loop just created (this is a girth hitch). Pass the girth hitch beyond the stopper knot. Note: Be sure to only expose the lilian and leave the hard rod tip inside to avoid accidentally breaking the tip while tightening the knot! Tip: Place a finger tip over the rod opening to hold the rod inside.
5. Tighten down the knot by carefully pulling on the fly line while holding the lilian firmly (and the rod tip inside the rod).
