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. 296) No Fish at Saruwatari in Nonami (野波の猿渡にて釣果なし)

Saruwatari in Nonami is the spot where I had caught the first yellowtail amberjack since I came back to Japan (If you are interested, see No. 217). Unfortunately the fish was also the last one I had caught. This morning I was standing at Saruwatari with slightly bigger anticipation than when I went to other spots. I had caught not only the yellowtail amberjack but also other fish such as a Japanese Spanish mackerel at the spot. However, the sea was too quiet and calm today. In the water, plenty of the pearl-spot chromis were swimming peacefully.
