I am a experienced fly fisherman and recently purchased a Japanese Tenkara Rod, 12 ft. The rod is a kick to use, anyone else tried one yet?
So do you plan to fish with Tenkara type flies? Tied in the sakasa kebari style? Or standard flies? PM me your address I can send you a hand full of standard flies I have tied.. if you wish I can send some sakasa kebari style flies that I can tie up..
I just bought a 9 footer with an 8 foot furled leader. I also got a 4x tippet to go with it.
Can't wait to use it. I'm not a fly fisherman so it will be fun to learn about fishing with flies. I figure not having a reel will simplify things a bit.
My streams are pretty small which is why I selected a 9 footer.
