I visited the Yozawa Fishing Area for the first time. It is a quaint hitoric area since 1955, and has been a training river for Japanese flyfishers.
I once read an article about this area and was longing for visiting, but I was too young to do it. If my memory serves me correctly, a female anger was catching a big rainbow trout on a Orvis rod.
I visited with my colleagues. It was a calm and warm day.
I tied a parachute fly tied on TMC531 size 16 on 6X tippet and casted it. Fishes are spooky and they swim away. Then I took a distance and got a beautiful Yamame fish.
I hooked up a branch and found many flies on it. That is fisherman. We think the same thing.
We caught some Yamame, Brown trout, Rainbows and had a good day. It is still a good place.
