The author, who has been fishing at the headwaters of streams for about 40 years and is known for his works such as "Hyoitto Genryu Tsuri" and "Nihon Shakunakei", has compiled all the know-how for fishing and staying overnight in the upper reaches of uninhabited streams (i.e. the headwaters). The book thoroughly and carefully explains the actual techniques of stream fishing and camping, including how to make a plan starting from choosing a river, how to walk and cross the river to safely reach your destination, how to fish, how to set up a tarp, how to make a bonfire and clean up afterwards, how to cook rice, and how to prepare sashimi from the char you caught. It also includes model plans for staying overnight in the streams of five rivers in Honshu, showing the locations of campsites on site.

Why not leave the managed campsites and enjoy the great outdoors in an untouched valley?
