As a Certified Tenkara USA Guide Phil Sheridan offers professional instruction, guiding, and presentations on all aspects of tenkara based in the heart of Yorkshire and around the UK.
“I am a fully licensed Game Angling Coach with the Angling Trust and carry full Public and Professional Liability insurance so you know that I will deliver an outstanding service.
Tenkara enables you to have precise delivery and control over the presentation of the fly. It offers the opportunity to engage in a direct and tactile form of fly fishing that will fascinate and reward you with many happy days as you perfect the art of catching fish on the fly.
Let me introduce you to fabulous rivers perfect for learning the deft skills of tenkara. I will show you all the tenkara techniques, how to cast the fly, when to use manipulations (sasoi) to induce a take and how to bring a fish to hand safely and efficiently. I maintain and develop my skills with evidence based research, correspondence with Japanese practitioners, and sharing good practice with other anglers passionate about this elegant approach to fly fishing.
