Hello from Kobe, Japan

I am quite a novice and have only a few years of experience in spey.
For me, spey is the most fascinated style of fishing more than any other type of fishing I have experienced.
I enjoy learning to cast, skagit mostly, tying and also rod building.
My ultimate target at the moment is to catch Cherry salmon which is sea-run form of Yamame trout in River Kuzuryu, Fukui Pref.

Last not but least, my English ability is limited so I would appreciate your understanding.

Welcome

Great to read about a Salmon that is new to me. I just did a search online and found some interesting information on Cherry Salmon.

Keep us posted on your fishing!

Thank you for your message and warm welcome, gentlemen.

Cherry Salmon fishing is said to be the toughest target and is usual to get skunked.
Although it is such an inconsistent fishing, many anglers are fascinated with the fish because of its rareness and beauty.
This fishing needs angler's patience and strong will so we jokingly call it as Zen training.
It makes more meaningful that the River Kuzuryu runs near the Eiheiji, the head temple of a Zen monk.
My will for the training is strong and I hope I can post here the great catch someday.

I think they look like Steelhead when they are not turning into breeding color. They are akin to Russian Seema (Sima?).
