  Hokkaido is a hidden gem for fly fishers in Japan. Abundant in wild scenery, it offers quality angling from early spring to early winter.


  The river types are also varied, from free-stone streams and wide main stems that meander in pastoral settings. Our target species are rainbow trout (nijimasu), white-spotted char (amemasu), land-locked cherry salmon (yamame), Japanese char (iwana), Japanese taimen (ito) and dolly varden (oshorokoma).


  There are plenty of places that are less known and that offer great fishing with little fishing pressure. In short, anglers’ dream destination.



One day guided trips


  From 1st Jun to the end of Oct. we offer unique fly fishing guided trips which includes the lessons of how to cast, set the hook, and fish for beginners.

  In the morning, you can learn fly fishing at BFM's ponds where a lot of big rainbow trout swim.  As there is much trout here, we can assure that all of you can fish, enjoy and learn.

  After having lunch, we move to nature fields and help you fish there.
