My family and I went to Iriomote island where is almost southwest end of Japan and mangrove jungle island. There is subtropical island.
At first, I went to boat fishing in a river. Someone said me that we can fish Bream, Jungle perch, Mangrove jack and a kind of tarpon usually. However I got just a bream... It was murky and colder water in the river for hard rain at daytime :(.

Next morning, I went to fishing alone again to mangrove river close to hotel. Actually it takes 15 minutes by walk from hotel.
And I fished many "Kotohiki / Crescent perch" (Terapon jarbua). They are not so big fish but very active fish and good fish for fly fishing, I think.

|I was fishing a river mouth.|
|First fish in the morning on red popper. Beautiful fish!|
|Green popper was suit for jungle I thought.|
|And green popper got a fish too.|
|And cicada fly was working too!|
|I saw many a kind of goby beside my feet.|
|And I took brown fly. Does it look like goby?|
|Yes, I did on goby fly.|
|Oh, there are so many small crabs!|
|Looks like crab?|
|Yes, I did.|
|And I got it on shrimp fly too!|
