Tamo ~ Net

The following pictures are of the Tamo of a few Tenkara fishers in America. These Tamo are made in Japan and are truly works of art. Made of various tree limbs, the hoop is actually a splice of two limbs. The net bags are soft and are attached with two methods, eyed pins that the circumference top of the net is threaded a length of nylon through the pins and net. The other method is to lash the net to the hoop.

Instead of going on about who made some of these nets, I'll let the pictures stand on their own...
