Tenkara is a traditional Japanese method of fly fishing utilizing just a rod, a line, and a fly. No reels and no hassle. The simplicity of Tenkara is perfect for beginning fishers, yet holds a subtle complexity that can engage you for years. The lightweight gear and intuitive methods apply well in Utah's rivers and backcountry. Participants will enjoy an evening of in-class discussion about history, gear, and techniques with Tenkara Guides LLC , the first exclusive Tenkara guide company outside of Japan. Saturday, we'll join Tenkara Guides on the river to be taught by the true experts of fly fishing - the trout. You are responsible for providing your fishing license, sack lunch, polarized sunglasses (essential for eye protection), and either waders and boots or clothes and shoes that can get wet. Equipment rental (tippet spool, 5 flies, rod and line) is included in your special fee. Students may bring additional flies, or purchase them from the instructor onsite for $2. Class is limited to 10.
