Kieryu in saltwalter
Today was a very good day for me. I beat my personal best in most species and fish in one session of fishing. My setup was Shimosuke 3.3,12ft of 3.5 level line, 3ft of 5x tippet and Black Magic size 18 2x long fly hook with white bread for bait. Fishing, I put a bread trail in the water to drive the fish in a frenzy. Once the fish got in a frenzy I put a piece of bread on the hook and hooked up fish after fish. The total fish was 19 fish,1 redeye toadfish,5 yellowfin bream,1 unidentified sea garfish - I know my local area like the back of my hand but I never seen that fish here. 1 hardyhead and ten eastern sea garfish. I caught all those fish in 40 minutes.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
