Tenkara USA Tapered Nylon Line

$14.00

Product Overview

These tapered nylon lines combine the easy rigging and quick setup of furled lines with the light weight, delicate presentation and high visibility of level lines.  They are a solid choice for new tenkara anglers and are a favorite of many experienced in the method as well.  The tapered design features a heavier butt section for easy casting and fly turnover with a finely tapered tip for a soft landing of the fly and minimal sag-induced drag. 

The line connects to the rod with a simple girth hitch in the attached backing segment, making for easy rigging without any tricky knots.  The tip of the line is knot-free.  Tippet can be connected with the tenkara "one knot" as described in the included instructions.  Some anglers prefer to tie a loop (the Perfection Loop works well) in the tip of the line or use a tippet ring to provide an attachment point for your tippet. 

Available in two lengths:

  • 11'6" (3.5m) - Ideal for rods shorter than 13 feet, small to mid-size streams
  • 14'9" (4.5m) - Ideal for rods longer than 13 feet, mid-size to larger streams, open waters or any time additional reach is desired
