The mountain stream is a part of upper stream of Kuzuryu river that is the biggest river in Fukui. There is native Japanese char living in a stream.
|The first fish isn't char.|
It's Amago that is landlocked Satsukimasu salmon
and very similar Yamame trout.
|It's my first Iwana, char.|
|We call Iwana for char / Salvelinus.|
|I lost biggest Iwana in this pool... :(|
|Amago. You can see small orange spot on body, right?|
It's sign of Amago and Yamame doesn't those orange spot.
Approximately, Amago lives in western Japan and Yamame lives in east.
|The cool Amago!|
|It's drown cicada I took.|
|And I got several Iwana on foam cicada fly!|
|Royal wolf for evening time. It's visible fly than royal coachman.|
|Typical Iwana in mountain stream.|
|A simplest caddis.|
|This is the last fish of my trip.|
The Iwana is not only beautiful fish as trout but also fairy fish.
I can say about Iwana and this fishing trip, "Fantastic"!
