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?
