Walking with the Tenkara rod

Postby rvrgzr » Thu Jul 16, 2009 4:40 am

Since walking with a 12' rod can be difficult, here's what I do when going through the woods from one fishing spot to another.

I collapse the rod:

Bend my elbow and wrap the line around my elbow and extended little finger.

Then I grasp the hook (Moffit System) or fly in my thumb and forefinger

This method keeps the line from tangling and the rod is ready to re-open quickly.

I saw in a photo the line just coiled up in a small circle and the rod collapsed like yours. I like your method better. Thanks for the info.
