Team Oni Casting

Posted on | October 8, 2012

Some of our Team Oni students have been with us for well over a decade.

We had some time to film their casting on dry land to check their progress.

It’s quite interesting.

They were all taught Tenkara by the Master Oni, but they all show different

traits in their casting techniques.  It is quite visible in this video.

With over 10 years of Tenkara experience they are wonderful Tenkara anglers,

but still long ways to go to reach the Master.


Filming yourself casting is a great way to check your casting techniques

which we recommend to anybody.



If anyone would like Masami to check your casting, you can send us the video

or the link, and we may be able to give you some advice.

We’ve met may Tenkara anglers doing that before.

Everybody’s very good.  Here’s Master Masami showing how it’s done

↑ His casting motion is a lot quicker than the others


Keep at it folks!
