Itoushiro Catch and Release Advocates Teach Future.
Mr. Saito developer of Itoushiro Catch and Release area has developed a group of like-minded fishers to help promote fly fishing to the next generation. These youngsters who live in the township of Itoushiro enjoy the bi-monthly instruction. The helpers include rod builders, net-makers and rod mandrel designers, all of whom give their time willingly to help preserve the future of this special river. As the session progressed the children caught on quick and laughter quickly filled the room as the past principals looked on.
