The tenkara events along the Front Range just keep rolling in! I'm pleased to offer a half-day, on-the-water tenkara clinic with Royal Gorge Anglers in Canon City on Sunday, March 20th, 12:45-5:00 PM! It's actually part of our weekend-long Arkansas River Fly Fishing Festival on March 19th and 20th (Saturday and Sunday). You won't want to miss either day!
My tenkara clinic will cover the following topics...not in a classroom but ON THE WATER.
* History and heritage of tenkara
* Equipment (rod options, rod anatomy, line options, traditional and non-traditional fly patterns)
* Deployment of the tenkara system
* Casting techniques
* Reading water
* Specific technique (fishing the traditional kebari, fishing dries and terrestrials, nymphing, and
* Landing and netting fish
If you've ever wanted a down and dirty, nuts and bolts tenkara clinic, this is for you! It's going to be hands-on, experiential learning...and that type of learning is the most beneficial and the most fun!
Check out event details online, call the shop at 888-994-6743, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Registration fee: $75 per person
Feel free to bring your own tenkara rod and line if you have them. We will have rods and lines on hand as well.
UPDATE: As of Thursday, February 18th, we've booked nearly half of the spots available! Book early to take advantage of this clinic! We have limited reservations available!
I hope to see you on the water in March!
