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.
