YUKAWA River; Jewel of Creek
NIKKO YUKAWA was not so far from my wife's parents' house here. It took 1.5hours approximately.
As Kawkoi-san's advise, I started to fish at the upper hole first. Even it was before 7:00, there were several fishermen preparing their stuff.
This brookie was my starter today. My ant pattern did work well this time. What a pretty one was it! Now I knew the reason why the brook trout was called 'Jewel of creek'.
This hole should be busy by a sightseer in a day time, but it was quiet in the early morning.
3rd one was by hare's ear nymph. Their spotted pattern was different by each.
Trees, glasses and moss plants, every green relaxed me a lot.
6th one was also caught by ant. He was a good fighter.
I changed my plan to half day fishing today, because was so satisfied and fed up with bunch of people...
But it was definitely good day for me anyway.
