Here are essential stuff for her while her mother is in the hospital.
She cried a lot at the 1st night without her mother.
A storybook(with blue front cover) that we read at the night gave us a clue to deal with it.
It was my first fishing trip to Arao River. But I realized I'd been to Onikobe while driving, though I forgot about it...
Lucky for me to get there within 2.5-hour drive from parents-in-low's house.
Harvest time is almost there.
A flyfisherman just caught a fish under a bridge.
She was the second Yamame trout for me, small but a beauty.
(The first one happened to be released before taking a picture.)
In the day time, the river had very limited shady and trouts reacted well to my flies(baetis, stimulator and x-caddis) there.
Iwana trout that I was longing for!! (This was my second one. Frst Iwana also run away before taking photo...). About 27cm.
This was the 3rd Iwana trout(26cm). Little darker skinned than 2nd one. Too big landing net... It's not cool but we have to be ready for huge rainbows in the Arao, don't we?
I struggled to identify what they ate in the evening. Or there might be a problem how to drift flies.
I would like go back to Arao in the near future,,, might be this weekend.
Various birds were looking for something yummy.
Its color of wings was different from previous one's. Male and female?
Rises of big ones were quite sporadic, even in the evening.
My flies were attacked by small ones but they couldn't bite them. I was too greedy?
