Love the finished look, looks like it's already had decades of experience. Nice work.

That's not mono attaching the net to the frames. Looks very nice. What did you use? I know in another thread you said it was a lillian type line.

My Tenkara Rods:
13' Ayu, 12' Yamame, 11' with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

My Wife's Tenkara Rods:
12' Ebisu and 13.5' Amago, 12' Iwana with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

On my first three frames I used mono, and like it just fine.
For these ones I used a material I just got from Japan, not the one that looks like lillian, but rather some type of polyester floss. I couldn't find it here so far, but from looking at the pictures it really doesn't look too different from the one you used, though it may be thicker than it (
I'm in contact with a couple of thread manufacturers, including Gudebrod, to source the best wrapping materials for the nets.
