Lots of you-tube videos on tenkara techniques, that explain it better then I could!
Tenkara RodView Instructable »
Just finished my 3 M rod. 18 1/2" closed length, 9 sections. $4.50, for the rod, $.84 for the cork handle. Used masking tape to build up blank to fit cork handle. Applied epoxy over tape and installed cork handle. Cleaned up with rubbing alcohol. Purchased carbon fiber carp rod, and cork handle on the auction site. Cut up a fly line for the line and nail knotted a piece of Fluorocarbon tippet on the fly line. Casts nice!
Put a cork rod handle on mine, that I paid a couple of bucks for on the auction site. It's a 3.6M, supposedly 98% carbon fiber.
