Much better than being in a full packed train on my way to work.

Nothing like standing in a rowboat and hooking a big one. But, I'm sure they'd only be carp, not a sturgeon or salmon. That would make for an interesting 'oops'.

With this rain, at the moment could be in front of my house.

Very cute! The age range of the three, makes it look a like a 'fun for all ages' activity. Could easily be grandad, father and son.

You know anyone who fishes for carp standing on a boat? Looks to me like they're casting for bass with that weed growth. Largemouths are everywhere in Japan, except for Hokkaido. World record is out of Lake Biwa.

@TrevorPeaceToday: The world record carp weighed over 112lbs. Carp are extremely strong which is why they are used as banners on boy's day. I would prefer to be seated if I hooked a behemoth like that.
