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.

When I’m Not Fishing I enjoy spending time with my wife, Ryoko, and daughter, May.
I love to fish Colorado because Colorado has more versatility, from the small mountain creeks to the large floatable rivers that’s why I like Colorado!
