Episode 2: A Day in the Life of a Tenkara Guide

Jason Klass and Paul Vertrees
Paul Vertrees and Jason Klass on the top-secret "Stream-X" somewhere in Colorado, 2016

In this episode I talk guide-to-guide with my friend Paul Vertrees, a fly fishing veteran and tenkara guide from Royal Gorge Anglers in Cañon City, Colorado. We cover a variety of behind-the-scenes topics including the differences between western and tenkara guide trips, advice if you’re thinking about hiring or becoming a guide, and a few anecdotes about the guide’s life. 

Paul will be running a tenkara clinic June 3-4, 2023 at the shop. Click here for more details and to register.
