Tenkara Fishing Knot on 03/22/2010 12:26:39 MDT Print View

What's the best knot to attach a furled leader to this:Tenkara Knock OffTenkara Knock Off 2
I'm taking a Tenkara el cheapo knock off to mess with as a proof-of-concept. I have no illusions of quality, but I have it in hand so I want to play with it before ordering a real Tenkara rod.

I'm trying to avoid sending everything - line & fly - into the stream. Best knot?

Check the Tenkara website - they tell you exactly how to do it.

Thanks, Stephen. I'd looked earlier and couldn't find anything. I thought they had a loop at the end and just needed a simple loop-to-loop connection. I dug a little deeper on the site and found their solution. Simple enough. I guess it must be secure enough for them. I'll give it a try!

Thanks again.

A little late to the game, but here's a video on how to attach and detach the line:
