Guide Service

Thank you for visiting the Tenkara Grasshopper Guide Service.

I am proud to offer exceptional tenkara trip options to my clients in partnership with one of Colorado’s premiere fly fishing shops, Trouts Fly Fishing. I can provide truly amazing experiences in some of the most spectacular locations in Colorado.

Available trips run from half-day excursions to multi-day Tenkara immersive experiences. With access to public waters as well as private rod limit waters, the choices to learn and practice Tenkara with me, a Tenkara USA Certified Guide, are virtually unlimited.

I am excited to offer an amazing resume of public water available to my clients. If you want to stay close to Denver for a quick get away, or get into more challenging tail-water tenkara angling to augment your abilities, or maybe a secluded section of water to rest your mind, I can satisfy your needs. I will be happy to help you choose the perfect fishing location for you based upon your experience level, desired experience, and seasonal conditions. If you wish to experience a specific piece of water you have been craving to fish, you can request any of these world-class destinations when discussing a trip with me.

Our current rates are extremely affordable and accessible to everyone.  A brief overview of the current rates are found below.
