When he was young Ryota would watch National Geographic and absolutely froth out on the strange and wonderful creatures of our planet, it was no surprise that he took a particular interest in fish! As he grew his father would take him fly fishing for Bass and Trout, instilling in him a fundamental respect for the fish they caught and released. Fast forward to today and he's now targeting large predatory species from shore! Under the guise of finishing his Masters Degree he moved from Japan to New Zealand, but the true reason is all too obvious to us, he wants to catch and release the biggest Yellowtail Kingfish the world has to offer! When we first met Ryota we were not only blown away by his respect for fish and the environment but also his achievements in landing huge Kingfish from the rocks, needless to say we just had to have him as part of the Morningtide Family! Current Setup – Shimano Twinpower 10000PG on a 9’6 Prototype Rod or a Shimano Revolution Offshore 802 with 130lb Suffix Braid and 200lb Varivas Leader.
