Just booked myself onto the Tenkara tuition and rod testing day on Sunday 31st May hosted by Discover Tenkara. The venue is near Sheffield so not too far.
Tenkara requires a gentle casting stroke, slightly different to our regular casting technique. The rods are usually longer, but the casting line is usually restricted in length. But apparently the Discover Tenkara team have been trained to cast a very long line ie 3.1m rod and 7m line. Now that would help me try for those trout that I spot that are just outside my current line length!
I must remember to ask how you bring in the fish to the net!
