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. 30) No Fish but Dolphins Spotted at Ohtoko-bana (大床鼻にて釣果なし、でもイルカ目撃)

The swell was as heavy as yesterday, but the waves were much lower and the surface of the sea was calmer. I fished from the rocks which I couldn’t get to yesterday, but I didn’t catch any fish. I didn’t see any bait fish either, which means probably no big fish was around, but instead I spotted a pod of dolphins.
They suddenly surfaced in front of me. Constantly jumping out of the water, they swam to the east along the shoreline. Unfortunately my camera was not close at hand. When I fetched my camera from my bag, they were already far, but anyway I clicked the shutter. Can you recognize dorsal fins of dolphins?
