Your Tenkara and Fly Fishing Guide; 

 

I am Chris Hendriks  and born and raised in the Netherlands. During my educations in the Netherlands but also abroad I have learned to speak and understand  5 different languages. ( Dutch, English, German, Norwegian and Swedish. I started in 1999, with traditional fly fishing and graduated in 2007 at The Sport Fishing Akademy in Sweden. After this education i started guiding and have 1 season experience as an assistance-guide in Tasmania, Australia. And 3 years as a regular fishing guide in Trysil, Norway. 

This was before I started my own guiding service in 2012, Chris Hendriks Fishing- Experiences

 

 

 

 

Fly fishing became a hobby and turned from a hobby into a passion and finally it became a lifestyle.

I started out with pole fishing and have a 15 year experience on all different kind of techniques within pole fishing. But I had always the feeling that I was missing out on something. When I decided to have a career as a guide, I started with fly fishing. Then I knew what I was missing out on! Al the pieces seem to fall into place! But honestly, I never started with fly fishing if it was not for this reason. I always thought of fly fishing as very expensive, complicated to learn when it came to casting and let alone all the knowledge that you need to have about insects, tying-material and different fishing techniques. But along the way I also noticed how much fun this was! I learned a lot during my internships and as a fishing guide in Norway.  Slowly but steady my life evolved on how to make a living when it came to guiding and everything that had something to do with fishing. Whether it was guiding, writing about fishing, tying flies during the winter, or making pictures about fishing moments, it all came back to the same question; how can I make a living pursuing that which I love doing the most.

I have a passion for rivers,creeks and their landscapes. Especially combining a tenkara rod with the techniques nymphing, dry fly, wet fly and the combo dry fly / nymph is where I shine. During my guiding I try to combine tenkara and traditional fly fishing in such a way that it will change the way you fish in a much more exciting and effective way! It will literally change the way you look at fly fishing forever!

I learned to become a guide from different headguides in Sweden, Tasmania, England and Norway. To maintain, keep up and improve my own skills as a fisherman I still take each year a course or a guided trip to become a better guide and fisherman. Books can only teach you so much, but a proper guide can teach you in one day something that will take you a whole season to figure out.
