received many inquiries about flyfishing in Korea from some foreign
flyfishermen for last several years. They mainly visited Korea for
business not just to flyfish, but were interested in learning about
the possibilities of flyfishing in this beautiful country.
questions one by one and I also had some language obstacles.
among them there were a few who wanted to visit Korea only for
flyfishing. I answered the questions to the best of my ability,
but apparently the answers were not very satisfying. They were
not very detailed because, at the time, I didn't
have the energy to answer
foreign flyfishers who wanted to visit only for flyfishing I am
very sorry not for providing them all the information they wanted.
I had a
similar experience when I had a chance to fish for Taimen in Mongolia.
Before I went, I discovered how difficult it was to get information
about Taimen fishing and find a guide who could speak English. I
was in the same position as those who want information about Flyfishing
in Korea and don't know where to start. As you might guess, my weeklong
Taimen fishing trip was spoiled due to the lack of information and
the ability to find an English-speaking guide.
experience, I realized how important it is to get quality information
about the place and type of fishing before planning any fishing
trip!!! This is why I opened this site.
many flyfishermen who would love to fish Korean streams can use
this site. This site offers an overview of flyfishing in Korea,
trout families in Korea, information on trout streams and proven
outfits & hooks that work in Korean streams to help you in planning
offers my fishing reports on current stream conditions.
like to thank my special friends: PK who established SnF with me
and also helped in creating this site; My special fishing friend
Bob Silva, from America, who encouraged me to make this site in
English; Mr. Okuda and Mr. Keizo of FFF JAPAN who let me know how
to share self-experiences with others; and Yoshikazu Fujioka who
taught me many things about the trout family and inspired me to
make this site.
