Fishing in the Ishigami River

The Ishigami River in the north of Tokyo is home to many native fish. Yum, do I spy an elusive river eel?

Put the sweet plum sauce away, it's just a rusty bike.

Would anyone dare drop a line in this cement lined, toxic flow?

Without a doubt.

Strictly catch and release though.

Good god, I hope it's catch and release.

If you live in Tokyo, take time to explore the off beaten paths.

The cold concrete jungle is subtly flavored with joy and tradition.

Just pick a direction, and go.

Black Santa for the win!

I certainly wouldn't want to fish in that river either...

It reminds me of when I see people fishing in the East River in NYC. It's not catch & release though ...

Call me crazy but when I order seafood I usually tell them to hold the gonorrhea.
