Fishing trip with my Japanese friend, Okuda!!!
I was looking forward to fishing with him. He is nice
and have a delicate skill in flyfishing. Above all he is a real
flyfisher who I have ever met. He feels Mother Nature through flyfishing.
When we arrived at streamside of Kiwha, the water
color was a little bit cloudy because of the rain 2 days before.
Water temperature was not bad. 12 celsius.
On loosening nymph, a trout caught. His appoach and
reading the water was perfect though this water was first to him.
After this, there was a funny thing that
a rainbow was likely to take in indicater. Okuada changed the hooks
into dries but not not productive.
After dinner we decided to stay even
next day in Kiwha stream. We talked much about the fishing and life
for the night.
It rained for the night. So the water
was high and became so cloudy in the morning . Though the fishing
condition was though, Okuda added samll rainbow.
I called Koh in order to know the fishing
condition of east side. But bad news that east side had more heavy
rains than west side of mountains. After talking over where we go,
we decided to stay this side . We didn't have any other choice in
that heavy rain. I canceled the hotel reservation of east side and
let Mr. Kim who would like to join us know how the stream conditions
was. Latet We got to know that the rain was caused by the Typoon
All day long, we just were stalking a
little bit clear water here and there like wet dogs.
On Saturday, we saw sunlight at last.
But the water was bad as the day before. We enjoyed sunnlight and
was waiting Zane,Candian flyfisherman.
After lunch with Zane, we three flyfishermen
took a walk near the stream. Okuda who have visited Bow River for
12 years annually talked many things about Calgary and flyfishing
with Zane just like Canadians.

Around 2:00, we left Kiwha. We had a
meeting with SnF members at 7:00. Although we didn't get many chances
to fish, so nice to have a chance to talk more and to understand
See you this fall again, my friend Okuda.
