Ryan Jordan was the first state-licensed tenkara guide in the western United States. Ryan is a licensed fly fishing guide in the State of Montana, and the only Montana guide dedicated exclusively to tenkara. Ryan teaches traditional Japanese tenkara methods adapted to Western rivers, hatches, and stalking – a deadly combination for alluring large, wild trout. Your trip will be a different sort of fly fishing experience – we spend less time fiddling with gear and gadgets, and more time spent studying casting techniques and stalking fish. We will focus heavily on stalking fish, reading currents, trout feeding behavior, and traditional tenkara methods.
Ryan is also the founder of the ultra light backpacking site backpackinglight.com
