After living in the United States for 15 years, I came back to my hometown Matsue, a small city in the western part of Japan, in November 2014. I imposed a simple rule on myself. Use only American saltwater lures for at least one year and report what they catch...... When a year had passed since then, I decided not to lift this ridiculous restriction. I am still using only American lures.(2014年11月、15年間のアメリカ生活を終え、島根県松江市に帰郷した私は、自分自身に一つのルールを課しました。少なくとも1年間、アメリカのソルトルアーだけを使い、釣果を報告すること......。そして1年が経過した時、私は、この馬鹿馬鹿しい制約を解除しないことに決めました。今もまだ、アメリカのルアーだけを使っているのです。)

(No. 28) No Fish at Ohtoko-bana (大床鼻にて釣果なし)

Staying at Ohtoko-bana in Izumo City for about 6 hours, I did my best but did not catch anything. I got tired. So I gazed at dark brown dried seaweed sticking to rocks, took underwater pictures of sea anemone and sea urchin, and tried to reach one of the farthest rocks that I had thought I couldn’t because it is always isolated by the water. It was such a low tide today that I felt I could jump over the water.
So I tried and did it. It was much easier than I had expected. Feeling considerably closer to fish, I cast my favorite lures with hope, but still no fish. I said to myself. It does not matter. Because I reach the farthest. Because I see a different view of the sea from the tip of it.
