Tenkara Casting Techniques
Remember my post about tenkara’s diversity in simplicity? This video is a perfect example of that. In it, you will see a range of different tenkara casting techniques including the standard 10 o’clock / 12 o’clock overhand cast, the backhand (cross-chest) cast, sidearm cast, and the bow-and-arrow cast–but not just any bow-and-arrow cast. This is a very unique one for long lines and involves coiling the line in one hand while pulling back on the rod to shoot a long line into a tight spot. This is a really interesting technique and if you want to jump right to it, skip to 06:26. Thanks to Karl Klavon for making me aware of this video! I think all tenkara anglers should watch it.
