Remember, its just like casting a fly rod. Have a solid stop in your backcast and a solid stop in your forward cast. Also, unlike the 10 & 2 motion with a western fly rod, you will want to use a 12 & 2 motion with your Tenkara. This will help force the line to roll out instead of falling to in a pile on the water. Oh, be sure to carry a small landing net with you too. Due to the lighter tippet you have to use to protect the rod a net is very important when landing fish. Have fun and let me know how it goes.
