- go back

Trout, the primary quarry for flyfishing are living on tiny insects like mayflies. To imitate such minute life requires observation and practice, but it is the toil you spend here that makes the whole experience so intimate and rewarding. Also there are many traditional recipes dating back centuries. It is a pleasure for rainy days to tie flies, letting your heart explore rivers afar.
Wild fish are agile. The instant she takes a fly, she detects it's a fake and spit it out. You must keep your eyes glued to the fly adrift, anticipate the moment, and give a crisp sharp strike just when fish takes it.

It does require a fair amount of concentration, and again it's this challenge that makes every small success worthy of a celabration.
Makes you breathless!

You cast a fly, imitating winged insects, and gently lay it on the surface film. Presentation is critical: only when you succeed in placing and drifting the fly naturally, the wary fish will accept your offering. To see the whole sequence is so very exciting. Be careful not to forget breathing!!
Casting the fly

Once you've tied a couple favourite flies, you must learn how to deliver them to the attention of a fish - casting. Not easy in the beginning to throw a weightless imitation to a desired spot, but learning how to cast is vital part of the challenge, and the fun of flyfishing

The history of flyfishing dates back to ancient Greece. Later in the Victorian era it was developed as a sport among the British aristocrats, which was then exported to America, where it gained popularity among the public.

The first chapter of flyfishing in Japan was opened in the beginning of the 20th century, when a group of British merchants and diplomats founded a trout fishing club by Yukawa river, in the Nikko mountains north of Tokyo.

'A River Runs through it'

The film has quickly come to be known as a classic flyfishing story for both veterans and novices alike. The story, set in the early 20th century Montana, nostalgically depicts a life of a family, and their important events that take place on the shore of their 'family river'.

To many of us surviving busy days in big cities, this story conveys such powerful emotions, that remind us of a simple yet so often neglected truth about life and the meaning of it.
