I’ve been making hand-furled leaders since before I started tenkara fishing. When I started tenkara fishing I started making tenkara lines the same way. I’ve been thinking about making a video of the method but then I came across a video on youtube by Douglas Cameron Hall of the blog The Trout Fly. I figure why reinvent the wheel?
This method is very simple – and requires absolutely no special tools. Yet the possibilities for customizing and optimizing tenkara lines or fly leaders to fit your personal needs are endless; different weights, different tapers, hi-viz, etc..
