Spring has come!

Trout fishing season has started on the 1st of Feb. at some river in Japan. NAGARA river is one of them. Every year on this day, I look forward to seeing old friends & virgin trouts there. At the NAGARA river red spotted cherry salmon run to sea & river every year.

At that day, It was one of the coldest on record in this winter. I couldn't cast well with iced guid.

Many angler came there from around Japan. Especially Flyfisher like this river because they can fish a smolt trouts with midge dry flies in the snow.

On the 1st. of march Trout fishing season will start at most rivers in Japan.
Where should I go next?

this year's final fishing

 Yesterday, I went to a fishing pond in Tochigi Pref. to cast for trouts. It was terrible cold because wind was so strong and the snow lingered there. Guide iced in the early morning. I could cast long distance against the strong wind after the sun was up. And that trees after me striped me of my very few flies.

 I could catch 10 trouts, however I couldn't hook trouts as I plan.

 I don't know this trout. He isn't


trout. Maybe is he a

Last fishing this year

I went to a lake in Tochigi-Pref. with my old friend last week. I caught 2 rainbow trouts.

That's cultured trouts. But it's strict condition that day. It's a just excuse.
And then I ate last trout this year.

That was so delicious.
May I be able to cast for good trouts next year.

7 habits training program

I took two days training course of 7 habits. I've heard of it however not read it properly. Today is holiday and I spent time effectively today.
Up till now, My wife usually told me I should listen to her carefully and sympathetically but not voice my opinion and advice. She was right.
I'm no match for her. How frustrating!!

Today is a national holiday "National culture day" in Japan. I'm going to elementary school to watch the music program my kids appear on the stage in.

It interested me the most that all late elementary grades sang accompanied by all teachers band. It was moving.

Salmon fishing season has come!

Well, I went to Hokkaido again to cast for Salmon the last week in September.
This is my third try. I caught some Cham salmon on a regular, constant pace, 1 or 2 a day.

And then I enjoy BBQ for dinner with my old friends after fishing. I looked forward to seeing them on this occasion.
I would like to go there again within this year.
