Tenkara-Streamlined Fly Fishing!
Fly fishing simplified! Tenkara fly fishing is the hottest trend in fly fishing and RIGS offers has the only Certified Tenkara Network Guides in Colorado! With its simplified approach (no reel, just rod, line, and fly) long rods and ultra-accurate presentation, even first timers can catch fish on a fly. An incredibly intuitive approach that puts you in direct contact with fly and stream. Join one of our certified Tenkara Guides for hands on instruction in the latest trend in fly fishing.A full day of backcountry fly fishing will allow you to explore even deeper into our canyons, rivers, and streams. Miles and miles of streams filled with brook trout, rainbows, browns, and native cutthroats are waiting. These are wild, remote places where you will literally have the stream to yourself for the day. Try tenkara for the most productive method on these waters. Our full-day backcountry trips include transportation from the fly shop to and from the water, a tenkara rod, line, and flies, all-day guiding and instruction.
*Some of the main advantages are its simplicity, the very delicate presentations with the light line, the ability to hold the line off the water and a fly in place over difficult currents, precise casting, and great control of the fly. Only rod, line, and fly are used. The line is attached directly to the tip of the rod, tippet is attached to the end of the Tenkara line. Like in western fly-fishing the line propels the weightless fly to the desired target and there is a fly-casting technique involved - just a bit slower, and with a shorter casting stroke. Landing a fish is very intuitive and similar to any type of fishing with a rod: one simply raises the rod high, and reaches for the fish. Tenkara is an ancient angling method, new in the US. While its own style of fly fishing, it is a great tool for the techniques of close-up nymphing, soft-hackle wet fly-fishing and virtually drag-free dry fly fishing. It's also a great way to get kids engaged in the tradition of fly-fishing, to catch your own food while backpacking, or to simply enjoy the fishing experience. Prices per person.
