Thank you Hitoshi!
Japanese flyfishing has evolved in their own way since it was introduced in the mid 19 centry (If I remember the date right...: P). Those special simplist fly patterns were presented by a fine small bamboo rod delicatedly in beautiful gen clear mountain streams, just like it was introduced centries ago. It is the essence of flyfishing to me. The left row of the photos were the fine catches of Japanese trout from Hitoshi. It is astonishing beautiful bamboo rods with classic reels, and of course the beautiful trout! I love those photos a lot! I will put a frame on it! : ) more specific introduction will coming soon...
