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. 306) No Fish at Sakitaka-hana in Sanami (佐波の先高鼻にて釣果なし)

This morning I was the first fisherman that arrived at the rocky shore between Sakitaka-hana and Taka-hana in Sanami. A total of four fishermen eventually followed me. All of them were bait fishermen. The first bait fisherman was especially friendly, and it was he, not I, that started a nice chat between us. Then I happened to see his rod bending very hard. It was probably a yellowtail amberjack, but the tension on his rod was abruptly released. After a while he talked to me again and said it must have been a yellowtail amberjack. The fish run very hard, and the line touched the rocks in the sea and eventually broke. The information raised my expectations, but I did not catch any fish today.
