Backcountry Tenkara Fishing Video Journal with Paul Vertrees
Join Paul Vertrees throughout the summer on local water in some of the most beautiful parts of high country fishing RIGS and southwest Colorado area have to offer.
The most interesting part of backcountry tenkara fishing is discovering magical places to fish that few people go to. With tenkara you have the advantage of compact, ultralight gear that won’t weigh you down, and is easy to use. Just a rod, line, and fly. Having less gear and a lighter pack makes it easier to get off the beaten path to those remote spots that hold excellent fishing. Imagine heading out with a day pack into the backcountry, never seeing another angler all day, and having the time of your life catching truly wild trout!
Our region of Colorado is covered with everything from easy day trips to multi-day adventures, and they all include fishing backcountry water. On these trips, it’s as much about being in such stunning country as it is about fishing.
