In this time it was very difficult fishing because of keeping high level of water. At low tide, there were still much water and the hight of water reached above my knee.
In that worst condition one fish was coming toward me with boiling, very luckily and I casted fly in front of the fish, retrieved fly line on medium speed, and then could catch it very easily.
It was forth time to fish on the Lake Hamana. So I think I could catch many knowledges for fishing on flat during some experiences. On this time I try some items that were system and method though I don't know they were good effective or not. It was lackey I could catch four fish.
It was spring tide and I should start with so high level of water that there were no sand delta allover the lake. At first place I hard the popper sound and saw boiling fishes but I stood at down stream side from fishes. I tried to replace but not so good then I lost first chance.
I move to other point before noon with low tide level and meet so many waving fish fines over countable under cloudy and no wind. Any time before I had lost these chances like this but in this time I could feel 3 bite and caught 2 fishes. One lost was still striking too early.
After noon water came up very early and the tide was on top level. I could not find other place than the flat I had fished at first. So I hoped to revenge morning fishing or enjoyed baby sea bass fishing. There were some signs of fish though they were not chee bass and I head same splash sound as in the morning. I searched for large flat like A-WACS and finally I could watch black snapper which rush behind small jumping shrimps. The deference from this morning situation was standing at upper side of current from fish. And I could catch two fishes.
I fished at the lake Hamana on third time in this year, and could catch black snappers at last. It was tuff condition because tide level was neap and it was windy. I think neap should not be always bad condition. Wind make the condition for sight fishing difficult and we need technical casting.
It was good wether before noon and I could find many fishes and catch a fish that run toward me with undertow and bit my fly with no wonder.
But it became windy bringing heavy cloud as like as the report of wether forecast.
There are not many places wind effect little on the lake Hamana. However I could find good place on which many dancing fins. I casted so many times that a blood blister on my hand was broken, but no fish became active and bite my fly. I gave up almost, but then one undertow changed running fish, pulling my fly line and I feel high living tension on my left hand.
I could understood some items but could not still some items, for flat fishing at the Lack Hamana. Perhaps, it is different for approaching to fish including target of fly casting. Many time fish become spook to fly but some time active to bite fly. Though it was most important, I know.
Can I count this one for my result?
Since my second child have come, I could not go fish so often as before. But it was not so bitter because of her pretty face.
During passing the busy days, it become almost the end of season 2016, right now.
It was not enough season for fishing, so I could do less than half of plans that I thought at first of this year. But I could get few opportunities to go fishing, and I will look back at this year.
During best turn, May to July I did no fish, and I could restart at August. It was already Summer season and good for high land fishing, for which we usually need to walk long time on mountain trail. But I can get good fish at just down from the stope of my vehicle, without hard walking. At the Large pool, some good size fishes were rising at noon. They were nervous because it was too fine and shiny day but finally eat black small fly and laid in my net.
On the other day, I walked on high land way for 2 hours toward the paradise of fish, but there were no fish.
At the end of August, I went the stream in the village on high land. I could catch beautiful fish which was not so big though.
At few weeks late, I get a surprise by hearing the NEWS that 117 peoples were stung by hornets on the village where I had fished. So I knew I had fish below the bridge under that there was big beehive.
The fishing on large river was not so good until August. But I could catch some fishes witch were good and enough, but not more than 40cm.
Though I almost abandoned to get size up over 50cm, I could catch the fish that was enough size. It rushed and jumped with bending TRX-590: ultra first action rod on butt section. I found myself that I stand under the starry sky, when it laid down under my foot.
On the other day, I caught one more.
My season of Lake HAMANA start just now. At last year I misunderstood the limit of my boat license and went there only once. So I want to go many times for taking back last season.
In this year I already fished twice but lost 5 black snappers one day and get no bite of same fish the other day though I could watch waving fish fins more than countable. Moreover, My rod: #7 SALT was broken and My camera dropped away.
Tomorrow is ...
Fly Casting ...
