TenkaraUSA Traditional Tapered Line
Lengths: 11′ or 13′
Tenkara USA’s 3rd generation traditional tenkara lines are an improvement over our original lines: they cast more easily, with more precision, better against wind, and do not tangle/coil when freed from a snag.
These have been developed to cast in perfect balance with tenkara rods – with power and precision – yet make the most delicate presentations you have ever seen. These lines are an improvement over our first offer of traditional tenkara lines, being easier to cast, easier to cast through breezes and yet easy to keep off the water. We believe we achieved the perfect line with this one.
TenkaraUSA Tapered Line come with a transition loop on the thicker end, which will be girth-hitched to the tip of the tenkara rod. Tenkara USA lines are hand-woven by expert line-makers in the United States.
Length: 11ft (10’6″) or 13ft
Transition loop: Soft Spectra® braid, 80lbs
Shop Staff Notes: This is our best selling style fly line for Tenkara rods. It’s easy to cast, super durable and capable of fishing dry flies and nymphs. TIP- Tie on a short (say 3′ to 4′) of heavier “butt section leader” -it doesn’t need to be tapered. We often use 0X Tippet or just a section of an old tapered leader. We just tie a perfection loop on the terminal end of this piece. On the end of that, we add our about 2′ to 4′ of 4X or 5X Tippet via a loop-to-loop by tying a perfection loop in our Tippet. We also sell the TenkaraUSA Tapered Nylon Line and TenkaraUSA Level Line.
