Steven from USA visited Kuromatsunai in mid-September. He sent us a lovely comment about Ayu fishing experience that we can share with other!
“ One of highlights of my Kuromatsunai stay was river fishing for Yamame and Ayu.
Wading in the pristine river waters among Kuromatsunai’s natural beauty made for a great fishing adventure. We caught many Yamame fish but released most of them, keeping
just a few for lunch.
After a wonderful BBQ lunch at a farmer’s home, it was back for another session of river fishing. Our hosts were very flexible and suggested that we try Ayu fishing instead, as there were still a few days left before the end of the Ayu fishing season.
Ayu fishing using the traditional tomo-zuri or live lure technique was a bucket list item for me and to engage in that style of fishing for Ayu the way it has been done for centuries was an incredible experience. “
