The Koi dancing in the gentle breeze high above the river.
The message is clear in any language!
Mr Nakano and Mr Kato with Hiro. Always supporting me in Japan.
Three fine fellows.
Onegiri or rice ball. An essential lunch item!
Mr. IIshi Jnr looks for the next step.
Mr Kato and his tackle shop Dusk. Nagoya.
Into the evening...the serenity!
Salmon scales with a light metallic blue dusting.
The proud angler. Hooked in the river and landed on the beach.
Some anglers catch and release. Others enjoy to put it on the table. There's a balance. But really would you? A little wasabi and mayonaise dressing...mmm yum!
