The Tenkara method of flyfishing is gaining in popularity here in the US. It is a technique of flyfishing that has been practiced in Japan
for hundreds of years yet has only recently been introduced to fly fishermen in the United States, primarily through the efforts of Daniel Galhardo and his company Tenkara USA. The tenkara fly rod has no reel and the fly line is attached directly to the tip of the rod. It is a simple and fun method of fishing and is especially well suited to trout fishing in small streams. We have just drawn and posted two knots for tying the tenkara traditional line and tenkara level line to the tip of the tenkara rod. Enjoy - and give tenkara flyfishing a try!
