About the Club

Welcome!

Fly fishing can be learnt by anyone who loves the game of angling and it can be enjoyed in any water you have access to as long as it holds willing fish in it. You tie your fly, cast your line system, and lure your fish into biting. That’s the mechanics of this game, but there are so much more than just the sporting aspect to keep you interested for the rest of your life.

History

This club originally started as a small project in 2006 to provide English information about fly fishing opportunities around Tokyo. Named as a homage to the historic Tokyo Angling and Country Club which brought together 19th century fishermen from Japan and the United Kingdom, the Tokyo Flyfishing & Country Club exists to provide english speakers angling information and assistance in Japan.

 

Today, we are still a concise yet passionate club with team of dedicated members and good friends in and out of Tokyo to share the experience and expense of good time speaking Japanese or English while our website receives visitors from over 120 countries providing information about fly fishing in Japan.

 

Please look out in the future for more activities and organized programme in Tokyo.
