Looking For Something Amazingly Simple, Fun & Effective?


Discover Japanese Fly Fishing. Keiryu is a traditional Japanese style of fly fishing that uses a Long Telescoping Rod, No Reel, and a Light Line. It was used by generations of anglers as the most effective way to catch trout & other fish as a matter of basic survival. Today, it is by far the most popular form of fly fishing in Japan.

Why Keiryu? Whether you are new to fly fishing or simply want to experience something new, Keiryu is a fantastic, easy, and fun way to fish. With its stiffer action and flexible tips, Keiryu rods excel at hitting deeper runs and pocket water. Use weighted bait, nymphs, or soft bait. You choose what works best for you. You can even cast dry flies on our furled or PVC line!



Our standard Keiryu rods telescope to a length of almost 18 feet (5.4m), giving you the ability to reach out further without requiring the use of very long lines. The result is less drag, more bites, and greater ease in bringing in the fish.


The Keiryu line drops into the water instead of laying on, the result in virtually no drag, just a perfect presentation. “Present the bait naturally and the fish will take it”. That is essence of Keiryu. How and where is up to you.


The beauty of Keiryu is its versatility. While engineered to give Japanese anglers the decisive edge in mountain streams fishing for finicky trout, here in the U.S. Keiryu is being re-defined and leveraged as an amazing tool for catching a variety of fish under a variety of conditions using a variety of presentations:
