Best Tenkara Knot: The Girth Hitch
Tenkara anglers need special knots to attach leader to their rods.
For traditionalists, nothing beats the simple Girth Hitch used with horse hair and braided nylon Tenkara leader. Tied in conjunction with a simple overhand knot at the end of your lillian, it’s not going to slip free no matter what you have on the end of your line. This method can be used with a few extra steps on modern lines as well, providing fast changes to your leader.
