This year became Carp Year because the Hiroshima Toyo carp win the Central league of Base ball in Japan after 25 years passed since last wining. Then my wife's sister married with husband who is crazy fan for CARP and she should be Carp woman cheering the red baseball team.
There are no relationship with them but I have tried carp flyfishing on flat.
Many fly fisher may enjoy Carp sight fishing in the world as looking through You tube, though the Pan Fly fishing with chumming is popular in Japan. Like bonefish, after casting to fish shadow on shallow, fish chase on the extension of the fly line and then run with splash... That is decent sight fishing.
I think it is not only funny fishing but also good and accessible practice for sight fishing of Black snapper. Why don't do it, if you want skillful for fishing on flat?
The first snowfall at Tokyo was detected on start of November and it was earliest record. The end of season for the fishing on HAMANA flat have arrived, though no one know it have been game over or not actually.
But I still challenged to fish on flats which are on south direction. There were many fishes which were too nervous. But I could feel the line tension which were full of vitality, after many times approaches.
At evening, I enjoyed fishing with small trevallis and small sea basses.
I caught good size trevally that is twice size than the fish in the photo and bended my #6 rod at bat. The fish lay near my foot but it was unlucky that it had run away before I took photo.
Now it is middle of December and X'mas is coming soon. But should I try again?
Tomorrow is ...
Fly Casting ...
