Trout, the primary quarry for flyfishing are living on tiny insects like
mayflies. To imitate such minute life requires observation and practice,
but it is the toil you spend here that makes the whole experience so intimate
and rewarding. Also there are many traditional recipes dating back centuries.

A flash of a second
Wild fish are agile. The instant she takes a fly, she detects it's a fake
and spit it out right away. You must keep your eyes glued to the fly adrift,
anticipate the moment, and give a crisp sharp strike just when fish takes
It does require a fair amount of concentration, and again it's this challenge
that makes every small success worthy of a celabration.
Makes you breathless!
The sweetest of it all is so called 'dry fly' fishing technique.
You cast a fly, imitating winged insects, and gently lay it on the surface
film. Presentation is critical: only when you succeed in placing and drifting
the fly naturally, the wary fish will accept your offering. To see the

Casting the fly

The history of flyfishing dates back to ancient Greece. Later in the Victorian
era it was developed as a sport among the British aristocrats, which was
to America, where it gained popularity among the public.
The first chapter of flyfishing in Japan was opened in the beginning of
the 20th century, when a group of British merchants and diplomats founded
a trout fishing club by Yukawa river, in the Nikko mountains north of Tokyo.
'A River Runs through it'
The film has quickly come to be known as a classic flyfishing story for
both veterans and novices alike. The story, set in the early 20th century
Montana, nostalgically depicts a life of a family, and their important
events that take place on the shore of their 'family river'.
To many of us surviving busy days in big cities, this story conveys such
powerful emotions, that remind us of a simple yet so often neglected truth
about life and the meaning of it.
