Thumbs up Re: Question On Japanese Flies

"No reel, the line is attached to the end of the rod. Nobby San played around with it part of one day when we were down there. He actually landed two or three steelies with it... It was a real hoot..."


The style of fishing your friend from Japan was using is called TENKARA. Hence the link I provided above where the rods, lines and flies may be viewed.The entire system has just become available here in the US...
