Genryu is the Japanese word for headwaters. Picture narrow canyons, high gradient streams, no roads and often, no room to cast. The fishing style is often lantern fishing, which is a very short line technique. The style is called lantern fishing because the long rod and very short line are reminiscent of the way lanterns were carried hundreds of years ago (the lantern was tied to a short line, which in turn was tied to the end of a long bamboo pole).

While the shorter Suntech Genryu Sawanobori rods are excellent for Czech nymphing, the 63 is probably better at what it was truly designed for - lantern fishing. The rod is really too stiff to cast well, but for reaching into tight spots and essentially lowering your bait or fly exactly where you want it, with a relatively short line, there are few better rods.
