The Soyokaze Gallery is a place to upload photos of fish caught with your Daiwa Soyokaze, Shimotsuke Kiyotaki, Shimotsuke Kosasa or tanago rods and to see what other anglers have caught. I plan to group them by angler and by species.
I hope the gallery will help more fishermen realize that there are a lot of fish out there that they haven't even thought of catching, let alone caught or even tried to catch. They don't have to be wild brookies or wily browns to be challenging, and they don't have to be measured in pounds rather than inches to be fun.
The Soyokaze, Kiyotaki and Kosasa rods are light weight, convenient, relatively inexpensive little rods that you can take with you about anywhere - and anywhere there is clean water there will be fish. The tanago rods will almost fit in your pocket! Neighborhood fishing, out of the way fishing, fishing in spots that most people don't even think to fish - what a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Every time I pass or cross a body of water now, I wonder "What lives there?" Show us what you're found.
Each angler can have one photo per species. If you send in a new photo of a species already in your gallery, it will replace the previous photo.
Submit photos by attaching them to an email to chris at tenkarabum dot com. If it is your first submission, please also tell me the screen or user name you would like to use.
And please - I am no icthyologist or taxonomist. If you see a species misidentification please let me know.
