a good aftertaste of the salmon fishing, keep tying for next year.

Playing outside

We came her older sister's elementary school because of her activities.

You will be good at horizontal bar player like your sister.

Reminded me of O.Henry's ' The Last Leaf'.

I think my camera's color setting is a little too vivid.

'I wanna go out and play, dad.'
'Yeah, but it is raining, sugar. We can do it tomorrow, hopefully'

Review of the Salmon fishing this year

 Preparation: Close to the perfect.
Let's review the preparation first, Lance. The following 5 items are from last year's trip.
  1. You should have many heavy shots.   Yes, I did!
  2. You should have heavier sink tip than type4. Yes, I did!
  3. Fishing trip should be set around 11/10.  Yes, we did!
  4. You need full two days including check the river the day before.  Yes, we did!
  5. You need more casting practice...    Yes, I did! But found out that it was not enough...

Line system: Needs to be improved
  • I used type6 tip and 2 or 3 shots sized B mainly.
  • It worked though, I hooked the earth many times.
  • Sounds like type 2 or 4 and heavy shots should be better system.
  • And leader length should be shorter a little than it, maybe.
  • Don't forget that 8 loop was good for the shot.
  • You should take the stringer just in case.
Don't forget the above-mentioned items, and have better fishing next year, Lance.

2nd fishing trip to TEDORIGAWA river

11/11 Sunday morning 6:06, on the way to picking O-chi up.

13:56 Arrived the river and started pre-inspection.

Yes, we did see there was!

We had good pre-inspection one day before the fishing day.

11/12 4:08 started to wait the reception desk opening in the rain...

7:00 Fishing started, but I missed the golden time, had only one take and line break...

12:36 My late first fish on!(pix were took by O-chi)

Oops, be careful the drop off near the shore, Lance.

Rushed to land.

Nice fish!


Couldn't help dancing!!

Yeah, my fish! Thank you, O-chi!


Good friends, good fish and good time. What more could I want?

Water proof camera bag

It was just arrived before the fishing trip.
Please protect my camera against such an accident.

Check the length of leader and tippet

Now I realized that my system's length of last year was too long(over 1m!) for sink tip. Should be around 1.8m as total, Lance. It must be one of reasons which your fly couldn't contact the bottom well. And keep in your mind your both arms reach is 167cm, and 48cm between the tip of finger and the elbow.

Image Training

Consider and prepare all situation which you can imagine, Lance.
And please go to bed sugar, not to disturb me...

Shapen the tip of hook

By my wife's strong recommendation, today's our destination was MIZUGAZUKA park to see various colored Mt. FUJI.
11:59 Arrived at parking lot.

Yes, she was right. We all were taken our breath away.

Did you sketch it well?

12:28 Lunch time.

Fall colored leaves were still left some.

I liked it.
She likes to take pic by her DS.

Let's try this trail today.

13:16 Started to walk.

Wait, mam.

Mt. KOSHIKIRIZUKA was also made by the eruption.

Found small red fruit.

14:27 Almost finishing the trail.

Got crazy for scattering fallen leaves...

Thank you for the wonderful day.

As the same as around Mt. FUJI, we are interested in IZU PENINSULA GEOPARK very much also. Let's check two places of them as first today.
12:41 Arrived OMUROYAMA lift parking lot.

Basically cloudy, sometimes sunny.
So felt colder than I imagined.

Lift was only way to the summit.
Even it's altitude is 580m, a kind of hill.

It seemed to be made by the eruption long time ago, interesting.

Girls talk?

13:27 Bottom of crater was used as archery place.

Interesting, what is it?
Could walk around the crater like OHACHI_MEGURI of Mt. FUJI.

Enjoyed the color of late fall.

These JIZO seemed

to be built by fishermen. So I made a money offering and prayed good luck of my fishing.

What did you pray for sweetie?

'Good view isn't it, dad?'
'You are right, sugar!'

Also fun to go down by lift together to the parking lot.

14:25 close to the land.

15:02 2nd destination JOGASAKI coast.

So clear seawater.
 Walking to the suspension bridge from the park.

Older daughter was curious for this hole which could see the part of sea.
15:35 getting close the suspension bridge.

Good luck fisherman!

Now we knew it was made of lava, very unique shape and color.

15:49 I began to go back to the parking lot alone first,
because its parking lot would be close 4:30.

Would like to come here again.

Pretty squirrel, but coming from abroad 'TAIWANRISU'. Terrible..
