Gujō-Hachiman -- Ayu fishing

Gujō-Hachiman is all about water: it is located in a valley where three major fast running rivers, the Yoshida, Nagara, and the Kodara rivers, all flowing from the surrounding mountains, meet. In the summer lots of people come to fish for ayu, Japanese trout, in the rivers. The ayu don’t take bait, but are very territorial and the fishermen use a live ayu on the line at the end of a long pole to guide it around the rocks where it is attacked as an invader and the hooks on the line will hook the attacker.
