Preparation: Close to the perfect.
Let's review the preparation first, Lance. The following 5 items are from last year's trip.
- You should have many heavy shots. Yes, I did!
- You should have heavier sink tip than type4. Yes, I did!
- Fishing trip should be set around 11/10. Yes, we did!
- You need full two days including check the river the day before. Yes, we did!
- You need more casting practice... Yes, I did! But found out that it was not enough...
Line system: Needs to be improved
- I used type6 tip and 2 or 3 shots sized B mainly.
- It worked though, I hooked the earth many times.
- Sounds like type 2 or 4 and heavy shots should be better system.
- And leader length should be shorter a little than it, maybe.
- Don't forget that 8 loop was good for the shot.
- You should take the stringer just in case.
Don't forget the above-mentioned items, and have better fishing next year, Lance.

11/11 Sunday morning 6:06, on the way to picking O-chi up.
13:56 Arrived the river and started pre-inspection.
Yes, we did see there was!
We had good pre-inspection one day before the fishing day.
11/12 4:08 started to wait the reception desk opening in the rain...
7:00 Fishing started, but I missed the golden time, had only one take and line break...
12:36 My late first fish on!(pix were took by O-chi)
Oops, be careful the drop off near the shore, Lance.
Rushed to land.
Couldn't help dancing!!
Yeah, my fish! Thank you, O-chi!
Good friends, good fish and good time. What more could I want?

Now I realized that my system's length of last year was too long(over 1m!) for sink tip. Should be around 1.8m as total, Lance. It must be one of reasons which your fly couldn't contact the bottom well. And keep in your mind your both arms reach is 167cm, and 48cm between the tip of finger and the elbow.
