So far I've kept my line about the same length as my rod. Maybe a foot longer or shorter just depending. I was trying to keep tension on the fish. Not sure if I was leaving slack or if I'm not used to such a light rod tip. With so many variables I'm not sure whats up haha. Could still just be that I'm a tenkara newbie... lol
