New Personal Furling Machines and Otter Butter line dressing

Postby mhackney » Fri Dec 13, 2013 12:38 pm

Just wanted to let folks know (and with Daniel's permission) that we are now offering a new, affordable, Personal Furling Machine to furl your own tenkara lines and leaders. With this machine you'll have lots of options to experiment with not only line materials and tapers, but 2 and 3 strand furls too.

We've also just introduced our new hand-crafted line and leader dressing Otter Butter. Otter Butter works great on furled leaders to keep them floating all day and to add a little extra mass and stiffness to improve wind penetration and casting. You can also use it on level lines.

I also wanted to let you know about a free PDF I wrote on furling three strand leaders and tenkara lines. The paper discusses the advantages of a three strand furl and offers recipes for leaders and tenkara lines: Three-Strand Furled Leaders, Tenkara Lines and Fly Lines

Both of these items look very nice. I think I will have to get some of them.

Does anyone have any recipes for 15 foot 3 strand tenkara lines?
