Went fishing on July 10th with a friend above the Toyosawa Dam. Half the fun was just wading around exploring the curves of the river while shouting out occasionally to announce our presence to the bears. The light coming through the trees illuminated the mist rising from the river spectacularly. Didn’t catch a thing, but my friend did his best to teach me the basics of “Tenkara” fishing- a variant of fly fishing. Can’t wait to get out again.
