4 stars

This is not my choice but my wife's, who can drink after long time interval because of a breast-feeding a baby. She seemed to pick the hottest selling items of the shop. Bitterness and sourness were well balanced, very easy to drink. The reason why I didn't rank it 5stars was probably poor impact I think.

Panini for lunch

Basilico , Mozzarella and Tomato played golden harmony. Good job, honey!

Hooked on tennis

New tennis racket for my sweetie, and new shoes for me. We really hooked on tennis recently. I have to set my finances in order...

Starved for the fish

Can't stop the early bird fishing anymore... (5:30-7:00)

by #18 KOKAGE para
Good reactions for the smaller sized fly today.

Enjoyed the tender green also.

Lots of KOKAGE's spinners this morning.

They made me happy also, thanks.

Bike trailer after long time time

Do you wanna ride on the trailer, my sugar? It was about five and half years interval to use it, since we enjoyed it in Boise last time.

Lots of people was surprised to see it, because the trailer itself is very rare in Japan.

I guess it must be my last ride to FONDRIEST. Thank you for giving me lots of fun things!

My wife having her own road bike couldn't ride on it today because of a backache. Poor honey...  Let's biking together  next time.

Test of new wading shoes

Test time from 5:30-7:00. Fit feeling was awesome, but gripness itself was not good to the slippery stone with the moss. I was a little disappointed...

Lots of HIRATA's spinner was seen there. And I got several good bites to my #14 HIRATA parachute though, couldn't hook them up...

I could enjoy testing, fishing and seeing the beauty of nature. But I'm getting starved for the fish same time.

Let's go biking, sweetie & sugar!

We enjoyed each 'Pottering' together. 
I'm getting used to the new bike, I think. 


It was so sunny and hot day today. Just like early summer coming.

Our family tennis is still going on. About 2 times in a month.

I'm wondering what is she doing?

Happy B.D.

Dinner at K's Molt Rire which opened SHIMIZU city recently.
My frank impression was so-so. Would like to try real beer next, not alcohol-free one.

Happy birthday, honey!

New Gears

It is my first try for the rubber sole wading shoes. I'm wondering how it grips on the wet rock.

I liked its color of the sole.

Size adjustment

At first ride on PINARELLO, I felt bike size didn't fit my body size.
Let's check and compare with my old bike.
The length between the crank and the seat was almost 700mm,
same as the new one.

From the grip to the seat was 660mm on the old one.

It was 680mm on the new one. That is it.

Shifted the seat position 20mm to the front.
Don't say that it doesn't look cool, guys. It is OK to go, anyway.

Lens Test part2

5:45-7:00  I know almost all fish doesn't wake up yet, but had no choice.

Could get only one chance this morning.

Fish on!

Side A

Side B. It was 8.5sun perfect AMAGO, and first one on this branch this year also.
New lens's performance check was well done at last .

I like this soft color contrast of spring in particular.

got broken again after 6 times fishing. It is time to...

Just for a change

This year, one day license is enough for me.

Water was colored, so I couldn't see any fish from USUKUBO bridge...

Too muddy...

Long time no see, HOJIRO.

KINDAICHI bridge was still poor.

OKUMA's hatch was so poor, but some spinners were seen today.

Hello my late first fish.

He was rising for KOKAGE just close to the bank.

After 15:00, KOKAGE's hatch got restarted and rise got started!

Thank you for coming, brookie!

Had to say good bye before HIGENAGA time.
