Misako Ishimura

In 1990, on small stream in Vermont, Misako caught so beautiful native brook trout with her fly rod that she fell in love with fly fishing. Since that time she has devoted the majority of her time and talents to the study and promotion of this pursuit. A keen listener, an astute observer of the natural world and a firm believer in the spiritual benefits that derive from interaction with other creatures, Misako is most at home on the river with her fishing rod: she is a member of the Federation of Fly Fishers, Trout Unlimited and International Women Fly Fishers; since 1997 she had been the Captain of the Japanese National Fly Fishing Team, which has participated, under her leadership, in the annual Federation International de Peche Sportive (FIPS) – Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship and Conservation Symposium.  Misako is active in numerous organizations devoted to the protection of the environment and heightening awareness of the concerns of the conservation community.
