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. 344) No Fish at Nanbo in Etomo Harbor (恵曇港の南防にて釣果なし)

Heaps of snow on the shoulder of roads noticeably shrank in the sun, and I became able to go fishing this late afternoon at last. I gave consideration to going down to Ikesu in Etomo, but I was not sure how the unusual heavy snow had affected the treacherous path to the rocky spot. I could not take a chance. So I drove to much safer Nanbo, a break water in Etomo Harbor. However, the sea around it was so quiet that I did not feel I would catch any fish at all. I took a chance on a pencil popper, one of my favorite American lures. As I anticipated, no fish attacked the lure, but, after a long hiatus due to the heavy snow, just swinging the topwater plug from side to side on the water made me happy.
