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. 341) Unable to Fish at Kozu Harbor in Uppurui Bay (十六島湾の小津港にて釣りできず)

After driving my father to Izumo Airport this morning, I drove to Uppurui Bay in Izumo City. Although I knew that a snowstorm was rapidly approaching the area and therefore the sea was already rough, I thought I might be able to fish at somewhere in Uppurui Bay. I hoped I would catch the Japanese sea bass at Kozu Harbor, which is one of inner parts of the bay. When the sea is rough, the fish often come inside a bay, sometimes even to a very inner part of it. The waves were not very high when I arrived at the harbor, but the wind was extremely strong. It was so gusty that there was no way for me to stand at the tip of the small breakwater of the harbor. I would fall into the ravaging sea.
