Hajime Omari


Known affectionately as “Jimi O” by friends in Summit County, Hajime Omori was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. Jimi moved to Kremmling, Colorado in 1986 and became a professional fly fishing guide at Elktrout Lodge.

For the past 20+ years he has guided in Colorado, Montana, Idaho and Yellowstone National Park. Jimi’s extensive knowledge of Western Fly Fishing combined with his easygoing demeanor and contagious smile always make for a great day on the water.
