Four-Wheel Drive Tours & Tenkara

Dave Blackburn Blog Leave a Comment

This year we are adding 4-wheel Drive tours to our guided trips. The tours are designed to offer a guided tour to some of the off-the-beaten-path areas of our area. Since only 10% of Lincoln County is privately owned there are large areas within the Kootenai National Forest that can be accessed by logging roads. These tours are designed to access to small stream fishing and area lakes. The appeal of tenkara is its elegant simplicity. There are also other advantages of using the long tenkara rods when fishing in mountain streams, primarily the lightness of the line and delicate presentation. A long rod allows for precise placement of the fly on small pools and allows for holding the fly in place on the other side of a current. The other main advantage of using the long tenkara rod is precise control for manipulation of the fly. We look forward to introducing folks to the traditional Japanese form of fishing. We also have some very good developing Smallmouth, Largemouth and Northern Pike fisheries available for those who need a break from the Salmonids.
