    Description:
    The tapered nylon tenkara line casts incredibly easily, has the highest visibility of any of our lines, and does a good job at staying off the water rather than sagging under the rod. It will be a staple in many tenkara anglers' kits, and is our new main recommendation for anyone getting started. 

    The tapered nylon line features a loop to girth-hitch to the rod tip, simplifying that connection. This line is available in two different lengths, 11'6" or 14'9". While the line can be cut, it is recommended to be fished at the designed lengths.

    The tapered nylon line is our most buoyant option, and may be the best choice for anglers whose situation or fishing style dictate some line be left on the water.

    Length recommendations:
    11'6" (3.5m) for the rods under 13ft in length and fishing small and mid-size streams. 1% of the sale price of this line will go directly to conservation efforts 14'9" (4.5m) for rods over 13ft, for fishing mid and large size streams, rivers and lakes and more open waters, and for anglers who desire a longer line even with shorter rods.

    I like using my tenkara gear to catch: Smaller size fish (say 8-12" / 20-30cm), Medium size fish (12-16" / 30-40cm), Trout, Other species
    I like using my tenkara rod in: Very small streams, Mountain streams, Larger streams or rivers
    small- to medium-sized mountain streams.

    These lines make a simple fishing method even simpler. They cast so easily, yet retain the stealth required of tenkara's "up close and personal" presentation. They're also surprisingly easy to cast in light wind.

    Seems to be a great line. I did have a hard time figuring out how to connect the tippet since there were only videos addressing the furled line and the level line. I contacted customer service and they told me to tie it like I would with the level line. Problem solved. I decided to use a loop to loop connection though. All in all it works great.

    I like using my tenkara rod in: Very small streams, Mountain streams, Larger streams or rivers, Stillwater, Backpacking and remote waters
    Rivers, ponds, lakes

    Easy to cast and tie with. I recommend using tippet rings to prolong the life of your leader. Very durable material, I like it much more than traditional tapered leaders used in "western" fly fishing

    I like using my tenkara rod in: Very small streams, Mountain streams, Stillwater, Backpacking and remote waters
    Mountain streams and anywhere I can get away from the masses

    I am very pleased with how easy this line ins to cast and keep off the water. It is very versatile and I have cut a few of them for my shorter rods. In general they are perfect out of the box. put a knot on the end, add some tippet and fly and go. Keep blending innovation and tradition folks.
