I have been fishing Tenkara for many years going back to at least 2014. Since then I have owned, fished , or drooled over most main stream rods from Japan. I have an special affinity for Shimano Tenkara rods using design input from Dr. Ishigaki. I recently ordered the new Shimano BG Tenkara rod which is due out December 2020. I could not find any Honryu Tenkara technique threads in the search function here and thought I would spark interest. Here are some good links for anyone interested in larger water, bigger fish Tenkara techniques.
