I have owned and operated a Coldwater guide Service for about 6 years now. After giving Tenkara a try two years ago in The Black Hills of South Dakota, I immediately fell in love with this simplified technique of fly fishing and would now like to start passing this method along to my clients. I guide in the Iowa portion of The Driftless Region and feel that Tenkara is ideally suited to our waters. Streams can range from mid-sized to tiny and from open meadows to very technical forested sections and Tenkara gear handles the entire spectrum of Iowa trout streams as if it had been developed right here in the heartland instead of Japan. While Iowa does not require any kind of license or permit to be a guide I am fully insured and have had many very happy clients.
