Jin Woo Lee

jin-woo-flyJin Lee (aka whiskygin) started fishing back in Korea his native land in 1977. He migrated to Canada in 1987 and took up to fly fishing with the bamboo single hand trout rod followed by Double Handed Spey rods which he has been doing this for the past 11 years.

Self thought Jin is an accomplished single and double hand caster and a renowned angler well known on his home waters “the Credit River.” He has spent over two decades perfecting his technique in both casting and tying flies. He has taught many anglers the art of fly and spey fishing and favours the traditional methods of fishing with a fly on a bamboo rod or the double handed rods. He enjoys the Double Handed Spey casting favouring the traditional more long belly lines with a 85 to 90 feet head.

His passion however is in tying flies which he has been doing for 22 years- starting with trout flies and finally graduating to traditional classic salmon flies. His creativity combined with his grasp of classic salmon flies has resulted in his own unique pattern creations which have proven highly successful in capturing many big Brown trout, Steelhead as well as Atlantic Salmon.

Most recently he was a guest tyre at the Izaak Walton Fly Fishing Club featuring traditional classic patterns. He is a highly accomplished tyre particularly in feather wing with a special emphasis on the married wing classic patterns which he is renowned for.
