I realize that this review of the 2014 Tenkara Summit is late in coming but I finally had a chance to get my thoughts in order and give you my take on the Summit before I read any of the other online posts related to the Summit. That in itself probably sounds like blasphemy to many of you but I have no excuse other than family and work obligations to meet.

As a fly fishing guide in Colorado, a husband to a beautiful woman, and a new father of a wonderful little baby boy, I have had a very strong wish to share my love of fishing with my family as I believe many anglers do. I am not discriminating in my feelings on what is fishing, tenkara, rod and reel fly fishing, bait casting, spinners and spoons, any form of fishing.

Site Changes and Page Consolidations

TenkaraGrasshopper Logo

Due to the fact that I have been looking at the site recently and felt that there were a few to many page links, I have decided that I will be consoldidating a number of pages down for the easier navigation of pages.

One of the major consolidations will be the TenkaraGrasshopper Guide Services and Guide Availability Calender into one page. By doing this I hope to make it simpler for you to find out about the guide services we offer with Minturn Anglers/Colorado Skies Outfitters. You can click TenkaraGrasshopper Guide Service and Availability to get an idea of how this will help you to book trips.
