Dear all the forum members


I really appreciate your kind advice and instructions about my question every time.


So in today's post, I will upload two pictures of the beautiful Japanese "Amago" trout (Oncorhynchus masou ishikawae : Red-spotted masu trout) as a token of my appreciation for your warm replies.




The fish in the pictures is wild, not released from trout farm. So its body colour is quite beautiful and natural especially the red spots. Today, in Japan, these wild, naturally reproducing trout are so rare.




In my home town, we call the fish "Ameno-uwo" as a local name. "Ameno-uwo" means "fish of rain" because they become active and eagerly take food after enough rainfall.


Amago looks very similar to Yamame trout (Oncorhynchus masou : Cherry trout). Yamame has a thin red line on its bodyside instead of the red spots of Amago.


We, Japanese anglers admire the beauty of these fishes as the "queen" or "gem" of the mountain stream.


I wish you these pictures would entertain you.


Cheers,

GO

One word says it all .... beautiful.
 
Thanx for sharing.
Remember, if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid that doesn't fit any of your containers.

Hi GO-ito.
 
 
Many thanks for sharing the stunning pictures of amago. Please keep them coming.
 
For fourteen years, I operated Trout Fishing Services from Cromwell, Central Otago, and I guided a lot of Japanese fly fishers, chasing big brown trout in small streams. A lot of my business came from Japan Travel Bureau. I found that Japanese fly fishers are very passionate about their sport, very good casters, but not very good at letting big trout take line from the reel when the fish was running. It was all a lot of fun.
 
Cheers
On the fly or not interested.
