The Katana furled line is the ultimate in light furled Tenkara lines, the thinnest furled line we offer. The unique 3rd leg furl makes the line very round in circumference which gives it a better transfer of energy when casting, even at a thinner line diameter.

The lightness of this line is great for a gentle presentation on the water and casts well even with softer Tenkara rods. I would say this line is the best choice for un-weighted flies and even those who favor level line will like this furled line. I would not use this Katana line for casting weighted flies or larger flies.

The Katana line has a slight “weight forward” design which makes it very easy to cast accurately, even at longer lengths such as 16 to 20 feet. That is great for seasoned Tenkara anglers and even better for those just starting out in Tenkara.

Because this line is so thin, we recommend the solid hi-vis orange or chartreuse color so you can see it.

Choose the Light Line Weight for soft rods and Medium Line Weight for stiffer rods.

    Question: I have a 14ft 4in new Tenkara rod. It came with a 13ft mono furled leader that seems not long enough even with 6ft of tippet. What length and type of your Tenkara lines would recommend for spring creeks and farm ponds? Phil

      Phil for spring creeks and unweighted flies I recommend the Katana. This line turns over amazing at lengths up to 20 feet with gentle presentation. Line os very light fpr how iy performs. For nymphing and heavier fliea we are getting ready to launch a new line calles the Oudachi. The Bushi and Shogun would also be great options in the medium size. For those if you want longer length I can custom make them.

    I bought the 20′ high-vis orange Katana line because I wanted a long light-weight highly visible line for big river fishing. I first tested this line on a Tenkara USA Amago and it cast beautifully. Less dense than level line and other Moonlit tenkara lines the Katana is perfect for long snag free drifts in shallow and broad tailouts and riffles that characterize the larger Columbia River tributaries I fish. Testament to the line’s lightness is that is that it casts remarkably well on my No-Oni Type I tenkara rod which is a rod that is designed for throwing long extremely light line. There are probably few furled lines that the No-Oni Type I can throw well but you can count the Katana among them. I’ve caught resident Rainbow Trout and and searun Cutthroat Trout on this line and with the extended reach and high visibility I expect I will hook and land many more on this amazing line from Moonlit Fishing.
