A tacklebox adventure

There are ten fly fishing instructors in Malaysia. There is only one recorded dedicated fly fishing shop so far in Malaysia. Definitely a niche for the affluent, who can resist the grace of the parabolas that the lines make.

Nick Ooi is the go to man for the avid fly fisher person here in Malaysia. Having been established circa 1996 – 1997, Tacklebox Adventures has become an institution, literally. Nick Ooi has coached an uncountable number of people the art of fly fishing. Despite having such a prolific rap sheet he is a surprisingly humble chap.


A certified fly fishing instructor  by the International Federation of Fly Fishers this man is a firm believer that the fly is the best way to lure a fish. It mimics the fishes natural diet and does not spook the fish. Wise words indeed of a seasoned fly fisherman.

What Fishmalaysia has published is a short vignette of the fly fishing maestro and some of his laments and philosophy. Do tune in and support our fly fishing week!
