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.
When he is not on the water, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Ryoko, and daughter, May.
Jimi is also the inventor and owner of Ninja Strike Indicators. This innovative product provides convenience and flexibility for anglers fishing with nymphs. We are proud to sell these products in our shop or you can purchase them online at NinjaFlyFishing.com
