Just for change, I picked HOUKI_GAWA River Catch & Release Section as today's destination. It is famous for the large scale, scenic beauty and good rainbow trout.
Maybe I was missing American fly fishing in summer. I tied form beetle pattern first.
First fish was typical hatchery one though, gave me lots of fun!
Water itself was so clear. Wide and very strong stream.
I could enjoy nymph fishing with indicator also, and several fishes were caught. Especially sight nymphing was so exciting, but I couldn't catch several huge ones...
I couldn't catch any big boys though, could enjoy fly fishing with #5 rod after very long interval.
River's scale, scenery and beautiful red banded bow, everything there reminded me of fly fishing in US today.
