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. 45) No Fish at Kukedo-bana in Kaka and Sakitaka-hana in Sanami (加賀の潜戸鼻と佐波の先高鼻にて釣果なし)

When I arrived at Kukedo-bana in Kaka after daybreak, there was already one lure fisherman. The churned water looked promising, but soon a westerly wind got too strong. It was so uncomfortable that I gave up the spot and drove to Sakitaka-hana in Sanami, where the mountain range in the west blocked the troublesome wind. A bait fisherman, who I found came from Yonago City in Tottori, was trying to catch a red sea bream. I climbed down the slope of Sakitaka-hana toward its west tip, to which I didn’t dare to get in my previous trips because the slope was so steep that I got scared. However, no fish was around there. After a while, I turned back. The guy from Yonago didn’t catch any fish, either. So we just chatted merrily.
