Girth Hitch Method of Attaching Tenkara Level Line to the Lillian

Girth Hitch Method of Attaching Tenkara Level Line to the Lillian

Everyone has their favorite way of connecting level line to their rod tip. Many people use a slip knot method but I have always liked how easy and quick a girth hitch loop works much better on my furled lines.

Several years ago I saw a diagram in a scanned document from a Keiryu Fishing Magazine that showed a method of creating a loop on your level line for use as a girth hitch connection. Ever since then this has been the way I attach my tenkara level line to my rod tip lillian string to get that same quick and easy connection that I was getting with my furled lines using a girth hitch. 

Watch the video below to learn how to do this method:
