Masao Sakaguchi FFi’s Japanese Ambassador

I’ve completely been an amateur fly fisher throughout my 45-years fly fishing career, although I have used be a constant contributor to Japanese fishing magazines focusing mainly on match-the-hatch fly fishing at some specific
streams such as at Hokkaidon, northern island in Japan, and at Nikko area, 125miles north from Tokyo.

Also, in a decade between 1986 and 1995, I have traveled to join the FFF Conclave almost every year, which is the annual meeting of prior organization of FFi, and have worked as the program presenter and tying demonstrator there.  So, I’m really proud of newly assigning to the FFi Ambassador to Japan.

Fly fishing in Japan has faced to difficult issues as below:

  • declining population of fly fishers, reflecting fewer children and more older adults
  • limited wild trout fisheries based on Catch-and Release program
  • less governmental management on sports fishing, either freshwater or saltwater

To convey sustainable fly fishing to next generations, I would like to help many Japanese fly fishers joining to the FFi, to challenge these issues and to enhance educational programs.

My areas of operation include the American Rocky Mountains, the Himalayas, Southeast Asia, the South Pacific and Central Pacific. My passion for adventure and fly fishing have lead to a deep connection with conservation-based initiatives around the world.
