The 2011 Fishing Trade Show was held at the Okinawa Convention Center in Ginowan City in Okinawa on April 9 and 10, with 72 companies related to fishing and boat manufacturing participating from Okinawa and further afield. Many fishing fans came to get a chance to handle the latest fishing gear.

At a talk show run as part of the event, well-known fishing instructors Minoru Matsuda, Masanori Uzawa, Akira Ohchi, Takuya Hirawa and Reiko Kodama spoke enthusiastically about the thrill of fishing.

We all know that staying safe at all times and keeping to the established rules and protocols of fishing is just as important as ever.
