The present of Father's day from my family was one day fishing trip! So gone for OSHINO with Tommy today.
We left 4:30AM and arrived there before 6:00AM to try KUROMADARA's hatch. But it likely was too late for it. Later, WATANABE-san said that we should come before 4AM... Shall we?
Instead of it, large mayfly's spinner(NAMIFUTAO?) were often seen there(right pic was took by Tommy). So I tied the hen hackle spinner pattern without hesitation.
After lots of mis-hooking, got first one, brown trout by it.
Around S-bend hole, still large mayfly's spinner fall was going on.
2nd one was this rainbow by same pattern.
In it's stomach, small stonefly's nymph was dominant and a few large mayfly's spinner.
So I changed to the CDC stonefly pattern, and got some fishes.
Tommy was also enjoying his fishing.
After small stonefly's hatch(MIDORI_KAWAGERA?), we were struggling to identify what they were feeding for a long time...
Eventually we found it was middle sized mayfly's spinner(one of MADARA species) with WATANABE-san's suggestion.
My last one in the morning was this nice bow by kawkoi-san's original rusty spinner pattern #16. It was not easy game, because he kept rising so close to the bank of the other side.
We had a lunch at YANAGIHARA noodle restaurant(first time to visit for me). 'NIKU_UDON',noodle with pork was good to eat with reasonable price!
Afternoon, moved to around KINDAICHI bridge.
This pretty colored bow ignored #16 rusty spinner completely, but bit #14 curved shank parachute by first cast. Interesting!
Caught by same pattern also there.
Moved to MOHEI bridge. And caught some by same #14 pattern.
One of them bit ants also. Summer is almost there.
Back to S-bend as our final hole today(without evening fishing).
Tommy got the strike.
Nice catch, Tommy!
It was first experience for me that the spinner fall was major through the day. Whenever I come here, have lots of something new.
