Have you seen this tenkara casting?

This is the real tenkara casting.

This is a special technique that has never been introduced in Japan yet.

The name of this casting is [Hachinojihuri /八の字振り] and [Hangetsuhuri /半月振り]. It is a technique I made.

Nobody in Japanese famous Tenkara Fisherman knows this casting.

If you have insistence on traditional Japanese tenkara, I think you need to know about casting techniques using tapered lines.

This casting technique enables the use of long line, long tippet.

I do not need back cast.

Thank you for participating on our forum! That does look like a good technique when there isn't room for a backcast.

How long was your line and tippet in the video?
