But I liked brown buck tail material itself, which I got first time today. It was discounted one though, not bad.
I would like to check its performance, especially durability of water-repellent.
We visited my uncle, my dad's older brother's house to make bamboo ware. We thought it should be good experience for her.
My dad picked one thick bamboo and began to saw it with her.
He knew its knack well. I should remember it.
Just like 'workshop', isn't it?
They are expected to be used as our tableware, especially as camping stuff.
We visited M river, one of KANOGAWA river system just for change
and seeing what's going on there.
Around 10:30, there seemed to be no hatch. Only some stonefly adults were seen.
One of the stonefly species
A larva of Protohermes grandis 'HEBITONBO', a kind grotesque.
Typical baetis KOKAGE's female dun, which had olive colored body. Its hatch was getting approaching noon.
And its spinner. Rusty body color and clear wing were its significant features.
Baetiella japonica, FUTABAKOKAGEROU's male dun with its shuck. For my tying , it was good to know its color was so dark.
Overall, hatch itself was slow because of low water temprature, and there were no rises yet. Probably upper stream area needs more time for dry fly fishing.
