A common concern in tenkara (and a valid one) is casting in the wind. Of course, there are ways to mitigate this and there’s been much discussion on the topic: adjust your casting stroke, use a heavier line, use the blow line technique, use a titanium tenkara line, etc. But to me, a much bigger problem with wind is the drag it creates on your tenkara line, preventing you from achieving a good dead drift. In this short video, I address that problem and offer a simple solution to overcome it (one you might have already discovered on your own).
