My wife made the marmalade from some oranges. Yum-yum!


The rainy season has just set in.
Small NANTEN tree in our garden is going to bear fruit.

The river runs through it, no matter how sad I am.

Upper section was just silent.

Move to the lower section which I've never seen any AMAGO trout.

But I could see some good ones there, even though I could catch baby only...

Hopefully I'll be back soon.

Dear my friend,

I bought your favorite picture book, 'UN JOUR, UN CHIEN' by Gabrielle Vincent. And now I knew the reason why you loved her book. I am still looking forward to reading your first picture book.
May you rest in peace.

Try & Error

My today's strategy was "To find new hole of KANOGAWA branch and to enjoy the evening of main stream". Especially I was expecting MONKAGE's hatch and rise for it around the main stream.
H-river was new branch stream for me.
Location was so nice with beautiful young green color!

MONKAGE was often seen there.

HIRATA's spinner was also seen(NAMIHIRATA?).

Baby AMAGO trout. Likely it was born by reproducing.
Try the new hole of O-river branch.

Countless OIKAWA attacked my dry fly.

Except MONKAGE, large stonefly was seen often there.

Said good bye to O-river and headed Z-river's new hole.

Countless hatchery small rainbow trout attacked my fly there.
Too many escapees, not good thing...

Moved to the main stream. There were several rises,
but it didn't seem to be AMAGO's... 

MONKAGE's hatch was poor at the mainstream this evening.
It was a kind of miscalculation, but I found many new findings today.

I cooked the crabs with tomato cream sauce after long interval.
Looks not bad though, I'm not satisfied with its taste...

The latter half of GW,

we visited my parents' home.
Their kitchen garden got bigger than before.

Our annual event 'Digging HATAMI shellfish'

Digging itself is a kind of hard work using huge rake.

Not so bad. Looking forward to the dinner tomorrow.

main stream kept silence this time also.

Except this one. Moved to the branch river.

Super tiny AMAGO there.

Got the pretty one also.

27cm was maybe my AMAGO record?
