Got a license & pre-inspection

 I took a day off for the medical check today, and it ended earlier than I expected.
So I visited the fly shop and got a fishing license of KANOGAWA water system, a kind of excited feeling. Let's check the current river condition! I could see many aquatic insects though, couldn't see any rises for them...

SHIROHARA's spinner?

Typical Baetis's spinner

Many GAGANBO(cranefly)s were seen there

HOJIRO's buck(Siberian Meadow Bunting)

Spring is just comming now

It was our first strawberry picking.
We could reach there within 30min.
Its quality was so excellent!
Full tummy with the strawberry!!

A honey bee looked like so busy.
Spring is almost there.

Her favorite fly pattern

My older daughter has been asking me to do fly tying together.
So I showed her the fly pattern text book, and asked to choose her favorite pattern which she wanted to tie.
No.4 Midge pupa
She must like the brightness of crystal flash.

No.3 C.D.C spinner
Very practical pattern

No.2 Silver March Brown
I like it too, sweetie.

No. 1 Rabbit minnow
Very interesting choice

Let's try on them, soon!


It took long time to tie them because of long interval.
But, I'm getting shifted to fishing mode gradually.

First preparation for the opening of the fishing season

 just opened the fly box after long interval,
and sorted out the good one from the bad ones.
Now I know what kind of fly I should tie first of this year.
