In the same way that anglers may enjoy using split cane rods and silk fly lines loaded on classic reels, using a furled tenkara line can be a nice way of engaging with the traditional roots of tenkara. The original tenkara lines were furled from horse-hair and, some modern "whole-cane" tenkara rod fans use tapered lines furled from nylon monofilament, horse-hair or other fibres as a way of including tradition into their fishing. These lines turn over well and will land softly. They let the angler fish with similar advantages and constraints to those experienced by the original tenkara practitioners, and so have an aesthetic appeal. Their use is not only confined to bamboo rods though (far from it). Some modern Japanese tenkara anglers who use graphite rods do not accept level lines and factory tapered lines as “true” tenkara. For them, it is furled line or not at all!
