11/12/2019

Let me talk abput Yoga and strech.Because i rearized that no one,Called "Expert".Fly fisher talked about it include Japanese and all over the world...
Fly fishing is sport.Specialy spey casting is good exercise and my question is why not many peoples talking about it?
If you experienced Swimming,Skiing,Hockey,Lugby,e.t.c. any kinds of sports,You need to warm your body.
I learned from doctor that it is very very important to do strech before spey fishing and also it is so important to do strech after the fishing too.
My most of clients are older than me,(I am around 33 in my mind) and few peoples have problem of Back and waist...
To continue your spey fishing life,Please do remember to do stretch. There are no rule how to do for example, When I guide my clients. I warm up my body and it'll takes about almost 30min to make my body leady to walk river with heavy luggage which client lunch,drinks, and fly boxes...
Even I fish for my self, I found that it is much much better when I do stretch to make sure my all parts are warm,To keep casting 20ft,It is necessary to do and after the fishing, Also I do stretch.
My doctor teach me even go for walk with my boss Jiro, I better do stretch before and after.
Also, it is so important to go to Onsen and make sure your legs are warm it will takes more than 30 min to re-set your legs for next day fishing...
Best,
Maki.
