Ayu lure fishing is not a fishing method that invites fish to prey on you. It is a fishing method that stimulates the territorial instinct of the ayu, making them chase and then hooking them. You can start with simple tackle and enjoy the strong pull. This book is an introductory manual for Ayu lures for those who want to try fishing for Ayu, covering everything from the ecology of Ayu to equipment, fishing methods, cooking, and fishing spot guides.
