Educational Outreach Program

Spreading the love of Tenkara Fishing and life!

Tenkara Grasshopper Media Services is proud to announce that I am now offering an educational outreach program!

I am doing this because I want to express my passion for such an amazing method of fly fishing!

I offer presentations covering everything from the basics of tenkara to backcountry tenkara experiences. Presentations are customized to the audiences requesting our services.

I have worked with such groups as the Boy Scouts of America, Project Healing Waters of Colorado, and Casting for Recovery.

Along with these volunteer based groups I have also worked with retail locations such as Trout’s Fly Fishing, Minturn Anglers, Orvis, L.L. Bean and Patagonia.
