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. 96) No Fish at Kurauchi Bay (倉内湾にて釣果なし)

It was so windy today that I was sure the sea was rough. Usually I don’t go fishing with this strong wind, but this morning I managed to finish one tough job and I felt like congratulating myself. So I drove to Etomo Harbor this evening. Just as I feared, the wind was strong and the waves were high. Some spots from which you can narrowly cast lures were occupied. I drove to Tayu, a small and beautiful harbor to the east of Etomo, but no spot was available. Then, I drove to Kurauchi Bay between Tayu and Kataku. There was one fisherman on the tip of a rock. Avoiding the high waves, he was casting lures. I walked down to another rock. The sea was very rough. I thought maybe I would catch a nice Japanese sea bass because they like white churning water like that. I fished for about one hour until sunset, but I didn’t catch any fish.
