Bob Ivins is a tenkara guide in North Carolina. “I come from thirty years of salt and fresh water fly fishing. Three years ago a client booked a trip for a couple days and brought a Tenkara USA rod. He insisted that we use the rod. We did and I have been fishing Tenkara ever since. What a wonderful experience. As a guide it has been a fresh new and relaxing way to go to the mountain. I find teaching Tenkara a real joy. Whether an experienced western fly fisherman or a beginner Tenkara is a perfect way to go to these mountain streams that we fish.
Instead of a batchlor party, my son booked a Tenkara trip with Bob Ivins. This was my first time fishing with a Tenkara rod, will not be my last. Bob not only took us to water that produced great fish, he has made two new life long friends We are already planning our next trip and look forward to fishing with Bob again. Thanks for a memorable weekend.
Hi Bob this is John I ned to get in touch with you please call me im at 704 352 9376 very important. Thanks J. Mills & Rhonda.
My partner purchased a Tenkara rod a few months back and is so excited to be fishing with it. He has watched videos and goes out regularly to experiment. He recently took a fly-tying class and loved it. He is super enthusiastic to think like a fish, predict where one might be, and then actually catch one there.
Anyway, I’d love to gift him with some private lessons. We are based in the Asheville area. I know he’d be willing to travel to fish.
Might you share with me what you could offer and the costs?
