Tenkara is the way of fishing which used the fly which is in Japan from the old days.
The fish which becomes an fished is a land seal -type trout and in Japan,it calls amego.
The photograph below is amego which was fished in kaifu river.
I would like to tell you about "tomoturi". Tomoturi is one method on AYU fishing.
If you translate "tomoturi" literally into English, it becomes tomo - friend and tuyi - fishing. Thus Tomoturi means "friend fishing"in English.
When another AYU comes into a male's territory, he drives the newcomwer away by attacking his belly.
With a hook rigged to your bait's belly you can catch the AYU when he attacks.
I'll keep you informed about AYU (sweetfish) fishing and keep you up to date on the news.
The photograph shows the general style of AYU fishing. It is actually more detailed.
