Ayu zu "River Trout" by Utagawa Hiroshige

Here is a Japanese color wood cut by Utagawa Hiroshige (1842 - 1894) some time  between 1868 and 1894.  The original measure 9.6 x 10.8 cm.  I found this print in the Library of Congress digital collection while I was doing some of my Tenkara research.  I'd clean it up a little but I didn't go as far as to remove what looks like a fold (the blueish line left of the chop).
