Ramblin’ with RIGS – Backcountry Tenkara Fishing Adventures – Day 2

Backcountry Tenkara Fishing Video Journal with Paul Vertrees

Join Paul Vertrees throughout the summer tenkara fishing on local water in some of the most beautiful parts of high country fishing RIGS and southwest Colorado area have to offer.

Today I found myself at the end of a narrow, rocky road, deep in a remote canyon.  I had been moving up this canyon for several days, eventually cutting my way through a downed tree, to get to the wilderness boundary.

Heading upstream into this roadless, trailess canyon, I went in search of cutthroats.  After a few miles of scrambling up the creek and bushwhacking, I found what I was looking for.  Having such lightweight, simple gear like my tenkara rod made my pack lighter and allowed me to focus on what was really important…putting a weightless dry fly on the surface of the gin clear creek.

Our backcountry is saturated with remote, fish-filled streams!
