What you'll do

This is a Family friendly experience! Welcome to Park City! Summer is coming to an end and the fish are running. Soon the evenings will be cool and the first snows will arrive. This can be your first time ever fly fish tying or you might be a seasoned person on the river. This experience is for all folk! I've worked with folk from age 6-90! Tenkara Fly fish tying...Simplicity in nature. Spend two hours in my home, in the mountains practicing the art of Tenkara fly fish tying. With Tenkara, we use only the essentials making your Experience about the joy of being out there, preparing to fish for trout! Tenkara fly fishing strips away all the extras of spending time on the river and leaves one with a Beautiful Adventure. Tenkara is simply a rod, a line and a hook. The cork-handled rod telescopes down to the size of a lightweight baton for easy transport. Uncapped, it extends to 11 to 13 feet. On the delicate rod tip is a braided nub onto which the leader is tied, usually a rod’s length of furled monofilament and tippet. The fly can be anything the angler wants to use. If you are ready for an adventure, come spend time in my home or on my porch in the Mountains, learning the art of Tenkara fly fish tying!
