Tenkara Guides

The Tenkara Guide Network™ is a directory of tenkara guides and instructors who use tenkara as their preferred method of fixed-line fly-fishing. The intent of the network is to put our customers in touch with guides knowledgeable and experienced in tenkara. If you are a fly-fishing guide interested in joining the Tenkara Guide Network™, read this .

Below is a list of fly-fishing guides who have extensive experience in teaching tenkara, a fantastic alternative to Western fly fishing.

Disclosures and Terms

While Tenkara USA will try to ensure only tenkara guides with credentials and the proper licenses, documentation and insurance are part of the network, we do not take responsibility for the tenkara guide service provided by the guides in the Tenkara Guide Network. Tenkara USA is not a guiding outfitter. Tenkara USA is not liable for the services and tenkara experience provided by guides in the Tenkara Guide Network nor the Certified Tenkara Guides that are part of the network. The certification is simply our way to indicate the guide has a good understanding of traditional tenkara techniques. We do not endorse nor underwrite guides. The Tenkara Guide Network is a trademark by Tenkara USA. Tenkara USA reserves the right to refuse or recall participation in this directory at any time.

Become a part of the Tenkara Guide Network:

While we can vouch that every tenkara fishing guide in the Tenkara Network is committed to tenkara and has a great understanding of the method, we have also started a certification program for more in-depth endorsement of the fishing experience and knowledge of guides in the network. Certified Tenkara Guides have been certified in person and are anglers who have shown a great understanding and commitment to tenkara’s history and philosophy as well as techniques and skills used in tenkara. However, this is a very small part of our program. Since each certification of tenkara anglers is conducted in person we are not able to certify every guide in the network. We are working on ways to make that happen in the future.
