Our friend ICHIGOU invited us, curryman and me, to ITOSHIRO Catch & Release section today.
Hope this morning swallow give us a luck.
USUBA_AGEHA butterfly. I showed this pic to my daughter later, because new to her.
We left NUMAZU about 4:30 AM and arrived there around 9AM. Curryman was checking today's river condition first.
We can find many fishes easily.
The fishermen’s cooperative of this river never released adult fish, which means those fishes are reproducing by themselves. What a healthy river it is!
ICHIGOU and S-san helped us a lot, as experts of this river.
Since I didn't have many experiences at Japanese mountain stream yet, every their know-how was new to me.
At first pool hole, I got this IWANA trout by spent dun pattern.
Not bad start.
Cream sparkle dun as ICHIGOU's advise gave me this beautiful one. It worked so well , definitely today's hit fly.
Beautiful stream and good folks surround fresh green.
This dark dun (one of MADARA mayfly species?) was in third one's stomach. I was surprised by the number of aquatic insects species there, when I checked the website later.
I could catch 4 fishes only before the evening, because of many mistakes... Sorry, S-san.
Can you see many spinners in the sky on right pic? These FUTASUJI_MONKAGEROU mayflies were a sign of great evening's start.
I added 5 more fishes in the evening by huge white parachute. Lots of thanks for ICHIGOU & S-san, it was so great day for me.
As an addition, KIIRO_KAWAKAGEROU mayfly's male spinner on vending machine. New to me.
