Over years... my favorite fly (style) has evolved into a direction just like this one. small, clean and elegant! I think this speak the essence of a fly.

walked the Tokyo - meiji emperor temple

Ok OK, here is the photos... walked the Tokyo and spent a great afternoon with my little sister and one of my best friend - photographer YT ...and his friends... The meji emperor temple is a amazing forest in central Tokyo. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. : ) You can feel all the positive spirits that are living here and they touch your heart with their magic power. So peaceful! Of course they are so many wonderful birds live there too... crows, tits, bulbuls, ducks and many others. I sincerely made several wishes... good health and happy heart for my parents, a baby for my sister, good job switch for my brother and no more stupid people on his way. and a great luck for myself : )

the meaning of travel

What "trip and traveling" means to me? travel to a exotic place and catch a big fish? travel to a remote region and catch a lot of fish? if you know me and you know my answer... neither a big fish hunter, nor a solitude seeker am I... quiet opposite, I am a guy that seeking the experience of friendship bond and local life. I can be careless about the 5 star hotel SPA and fancy sailing boat, but I can not give up any chance to walk a dog and visiting the local fishing shop. Better yet, the owner in the fishing shop know that I was the guy had visited his shop 3 years ago. What a sweet memory! : )
