Horse hair fly lines are the best ones
I recently came to Tenkara style and after having tested some standard Tenkara lines, I came to the horse hair lines proposed by TenkaraBum.
I discovered a line incredibly well adapted to my Ayu 13'. The cast is very easy and smooth.
The line is stronger than I thought. I even caught a nice chub (rather fighting) from a place where I had no possibility to land it. I decided to try to break the line and making a quick move with the rod, the tippet broke at the level of the last section I made in 12/100mm (6X) of very good nylon but the horse hair did not break.
The service offered by Chris is also great and now he even offers a kit to make or repair the horse hair lines.
No come back to standard Tenkara lines is possible!
