While working an IFFF booth at a local sporting event, a person approached us and asked if we could have the state game laws changed to allow Tenkara rod fishing on Fly Fishing Only waters. Apparently the problem is that the state regulations require 25 feet of conventional fly line
".....and a conventional fly line (other line may be used for backing or leader if attached to at least 25 feet of fly line)."

I have not done any Tenkara style fly fishing so I am not sure how your lines are put together but I suspect you don't have 25 feet of conventional fly line attached.

How do you complete a line set-up for a Tenkara rod?
