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. 267) No Fish at Ohtoko-bana and Kobanare (大床鼻と小ばなれにて釣果なし)

I started casting my lures from Ohtoko-bana in Izumo City at 6 a.m. today. About 30 minutes later, two bait fishermen came to the spot. I had been the first to arrive at the spot today, but I let them occupy it. Although there was the repeating strong surge, the current was weak and the water was stagnant. I felt it was not worthwhile to stay at one spot. So I moved to Kobanare, another fishing spot to the east of Ohtoko-bana. Obviously, the condition of the water remained the same. Brown seaweeds were floating. I did not catch any fish but caught a lot of seaweeds until I stopped fishing.
