Fly fishing with Tenkara technique

The Tenkara is a technique of a traditional Japanese fly fishing. The particularity of the Tenkara is the simplicity of its equipment based on a specific rod, a leader and a fly (no reel and silk). The casting and fishing strategies are quiet similar to those used for fly fishing and Tenkara can be a great educational tool for the beginner fisherman who will be concerned with in the beginning of his learning (right-left gesture synchronization for example). The course of a typical day is substantially like to the description mentioned in the services called "guide fly fishing" and "an introduction to fly fishing." By the complementarity with the "conventional" fly fishing technique, this course may of course be included in a fly fishing stage.

FEEDBACKS

 

Lac exceptionnel

Très belle journée malgré une météo capricieuse. Site exceptionnel dans une nature préservée et sauvage avec de belles prises de sandres et brochets pour cette toute première sortie ici. Un matériel de qualité, la découverte de nouveaux leurres, la gentillesse et le professionnalisme de notre guide contribuent évidemment à la réussite d'une belle sortie pêche. A refaire au plus vite!

Philippe      Savoie (France)

 

Convivial !

Très intéressant, convivial et constructif, chaque jour sur des rivières différentes  plus belles les unes que les autres et très poissonneuses. Patrick a été plus qu'un guide de par ses compétences, sa gentillesse, sa patience et le désir de faire plaisir ou rendre service. Il m'a montré, expliqué, corrigé, finalement j'ai pris beaucoup de poissons et lui souhaite toute la reconnaissance qu'il mérite.

Francis         Vosges (France)

 

Bravo !

Un grand merci à Patrick pour sa qualité d'écoute et l'adaptation de sa pédagogie aux besoins exprimés.
Mention spéciale pour ses aptitudes à faire partager le "sens de l'eau" et la lecture des rivières. Les moments partagés vont bien au delà de la simple technique. Bravo.

Eric       Haute-Loire (France)

 

N’hésitez-pas !

Explications claires, pédagogie sans lacune, prof sympa ; je suis enfin capable d'effectuer des lancers précis et en plus de pêcher des truites! Conseils avisés sur le matériel et très bonne connaissance des milieux aquatiques sont de supers atouts pour comprendre la pêche à la mouche dans le respect de la nature et des poissons. Un guide de pêche à recommander sans aucun doute.

Sylvain     Charente-Maritime (France)

 

Magnifique Corrèze !

Merci à Patrick pour sa gentillesse et les mille conseils qu'il nous a prodigués. Après ce stage, nous aborderons la pêche d'une autre manière, avec le respect des milieux aquatiques et de leurs populations. La Corrèze est magnifique et sauvage, les rivières à la hauteur de ce que j'attendais. Toutefois un regret quand même : que le stage n'ait pas duré plus longtemps!

Freddy     Loir-et-Cher (France)

 

Lovely day

If you’re an English speaking fly fisherman and you’re looking for a French guide, you can’t do better than Patrick. I had a lovely day on a stream with him. He’s knowledgeable, gracious, well-equipped and more than you can ask for a day’s companion on a French trout stream.

Russell    California (USA)

Cevennes : March, April.
