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. 226) No Fish at Small Peninsula between Mizushiri and Maruiwa in Owashi (大芦の水尻と丸岩の間にある半島にて釣果なし)

My new fishing cleats have arrived, and now I can go to fishing spots with slippery rocks. Taking advantage of short open space in my work schedule, I drove to Owashi area this afternoon. There was a strong wind blowing from the east. As I had done three weeks before, I started the run-and-gun style fishing at Mizushiri, the fishing spot that lies in the west of the peninsula, whose tips is Susumi-hana. There were patches of sarashi (churning white water) around the peninsula. The rocks along the shore were wet and slippery due to the waves, but my footing was secured thanks to the new cleats. I carefully walked, and sometimes climbed, toward Susumi-hana while making only a few casts at one place. At Susumi-hana, the tip of the peninsula, I briefly wondered whether I should stop the run-and-gun style fishing and stay there until sunset because the sarashi around it looked so promising. I probably made about 20 casts there, and then started walking again toward Maruiwa, the spot in the east of peninsula. I felt big Japanese sea bass would hit my lure anytime before I reached Maruiwa, but nothing happened.
