Tenkara USA's furled tapered tenkara lines are the easiest lines to cast, and due to their weight they they are better at casting larger flies or casting against wind.
These have been developed to cast in perfect balance with tenkara rods - with power and precision. They will sag slightly under the rod, and absorb a bit of water in the course of fishing, which makes them better for dedicated nymphers or those casting larger bugs.

Tenkara lines come with a transition loop on the thicker end, which will be girth-hitched to the tip of the tenkara rod. Choose the line based on the conditions you are fishing and the rod length of choice. A 9ft line will be good in places with more canopy and narrower waters but also when fishing the shorter rods such as the Rhodo or Hane. A 13ft tapered tenkaraa line will be better in more open waters with any of the rods in our lineup, or when using the longer rods such as the Amago or Ito. Tenkara USA lines are hand-woven by expert line-makers in the United States.

Length: 9ft, 11ft, 13ft
Transition loop: Soft Spectra® braid, 80lbs

  • Fastest on the water and sensitivity guaranteed!
  • Location/type of places I fish: San Francisco Bay Area / Anywhere cold and clear
  • Made from super-supple no-memory Spectra braid, this line will have you pulling your first trout from the water long before your friends finish stretching and straightening the coils and kinks from their lines. With no stretch, you'll feel every bump and tick, and be assured you will have a solid hookset on every take. The tight taper will make it almost too easy to overpower your cast and flip the fly over.

  • Great Line!
  • Location/type of places I fish: Wisconsin rivers for trout
  • I'm a big do it yourself kind of person. I have used the level line, fly lines, hand tied lines, the older version of this braided line, and anything else that works.
    All I can say is that none of my home spun DIY stuff matches this line. I much prefer this over the level line too.
    It's easy to control, delicate, and so far has held up to tough use.
    I give in Tenkara USA. You can have my money. I'm not going to try to make any more homespun lines. Your standard braid line works the best for me.

  • Superb
  • Casts well, durable, and ZERO memory. Can be tricky in high winds. Nice taper creates tight loops.

  • My go-to light line
  • Location/type of places I fish: Montana, medium to larged sized streams and alpine lakes
  • This is a great line! I find that my fly presentation is enhanced when utilizing this line due to the extreme lightness and sensitivity that this line has. Not to mention a beautifully crafted artisan furled line.

  • my favorite line
  • Location/type of places I fish: Wyoming
  • I have tried fishing with both these lines and level lines on both my 12ft Iwana and Amago and I must say that I definitely love the tapered line. Although the level lines may do better in wind and may be lighter, I just love the way these lines cast so gracefully and accurately.

  • Precise but delicate
  • Location/type of places I fish: Tule River
  • This line is so precise, but presents the fly so delicately... I am very impressed how well and accurately this line lays a fly down. It can be so delicate, but aggressive enough to put the fly down hard if need be...

  • like it better than level
  • Location/type of places I fish: spring creeks
  • Granted, I still have only used the Tenkara rod for fishing dries to rising fish, but I like this line better than the level for the fishing I've been doing. Great presentation on very pressured water. Bit frustrating in the wind but that's a given. One of these days, I'll put on the level line and try some of the more traditional flies and attempt the techniques... But it'll take a lot to get this line off of my 11' Iwana.

  • High quality product
  • Location/type of places I fish: North Ga., Trout, Bass, Bream
  • This is a high quality, well made product. I am new to Tenkara, so this is hard for me to judge yet. I have been using the level lines so far, but I am drawn to this line. It seems more "organic" somehow. I am not sure if this is a good description. The presentation is definitly more delicate than the level lines, and I like the feel of this line better. I think anyone, like myself, needs to purchase both styles of lines to see how they cast. I have the 12' Iwana, and I wonder if a softer rod would work better with this line. Oh boy, I can see another gear addiction starting!

  • Love this line
  • Location/type of places I fish: Chester county pa
  • This line is absolutely amazing.... casts better than my homemade silk furled leaders....Using it on the AYU which takes the most subtle flick to turn over the 13 ft of line....caught seven trout yesterday in a place where I have been told there were no trout....awesome product spend less time casting and more time fishing...

  • No memory line makes great Tenkara line
  • Location/type of places I fish: WNC Mountain streams and small lakes
  • For Tenkara purposes, using a line with zero memory is key - this line has it. Especially for the beginner Tenkara fisherman, this is definitely the way to go.
