Welcome to the best kept secret fly fishing destination in the world: Japan!
Maybe it’s because not a lot of Japanese guides speak English
but we have WORLD CLASS TROUT Fly Fishing here in Japan only 1.5 hours from Tokyo!
My name is Maki Caenis and I am bilingual in English and Japanese.
I have lived in Canada and New Zealand and although
my English is a little bit rusty I can guarantee you will have a great trip fishing with me
in the Mountains of Nagano and Gunma prefectures.
There is a wide range of fly fishing in this area:
Learn to spey cast on lakes for large Rainbows and Browns
Target wild Rainbows in rivers and streams
Learn why our native Yamame and Iwana trout are so addictive to fish
My favourite fishing is for the two native trout of Japan:
Yamame and Iwana. Yamame are a land locked cherry salmon that are similar in temperament to steelhead
although much smaller and Iwana are a land locked sea-run char like a Dolly Varden or Bull Trout.
Pound per pound, these native Japanese trout are as explosive and hard fighting as any trout in the world.
We often sight-fish for them in gin clear water similar to the methods of fly fishing in New Zealand.
It is so much fun. Come let me show you!
