Tenkara Fly Fishing


Tenkara fishing can be seen as a streamlined counterpart to western fly-fishing. The equipment is designed to direct focus to the actual fishing and catching of the fish, not to cause a major preoccupation with the equipment. Only a rod, Tenkara line and fly are necessary for Tenkara fishing (no reel is used). The appeal of Tenkara is its elegant simplicity. There are also other advantages of using the long Tenkara rods when fishing in mountain streams, primarily the lightness of the line and delicate presentation. A long rod allows for precise placement of the fly on small pools and allows for holding the fly in place on the other side of a current. The other main advantage of using the long Tenkara rod is precise control for manipulation of the fly.

Fishing trips depend on the time of the year and the recent weather patterns. Our expert guides are 
skilled at determining the best fishing place possible for the current conditions.

Fly fishing is an angling method that uses a lightweight lure—called an artificial fly—to catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel, and specialized weighted line. The lightweight line requires casting techniques significantly different from other forms of casting.

If it’s the Spring, Summer or Fall, use layers to keep your body comfortable. If the winter, we’ll

be using the same gear, but the same principle applies. Wear comfortable pants and a top that you can move easily in. Use a non-cotton base layer, preferably lightweight (cool days) or a layer made for whisking sweat and heat away Wear eye protection and use Croakies to secure them. All wallets and phones get put into dry storage. Call for recommendations, if needed. Remember that wind adds windchill. Check this chart to estimate and dress accordingly: Wind Chill Calculator (noaa.gov)
