Behind-the-Scenes Look at Fly Fishing Hokkaido

by Fire Girl Jess on September 26, 2017

Solution for mucky-bottom wading with dual cameras… stuff one in the waders.

Sometimes fly-fishing and the pursuit of stories takes us to unusual places. I’ve spent the past week on Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, fly fishing and making images. The fishery is extremely healthy and productive, the scenery stunning and the people friendly. Despite a typhoon, an earthquake and the impending threat of missiles from North Korea (it was that kind of week) it was a productive, fun trip and I’m excited to pull notes and images together into stories!

Look for full-fledged stories coming soon in Australia’s FlyLife Magazine and the U.K.’s Fieldsports, but for now here are a few grainy behind-the-scenes shots from the old iPhone.

Trekking through Haneda.

Volcanoes and water. Everywhere.

Fish, three meals a day. Score.

Dusk long exposures over Lake Akan.

Gear mamagement 101.

The essentials.
