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. 358) No Fish at Susumi-hana in Owashi (大芦の須々海鼻にて釣果なし)

Since I witnessed the huge boil three days ago I have been to Susumi-hana in Owashi every morning. I want to experience it again, but unfortunately the great natural phenomenon has not repeated itself again. I just saw an apparently much smaller boil in the far distance. This morning I wondered if the huge school of fish might be actually around but below the surface, and therefore there was no boil and the sea looked calm. So I kept retrieving shiny metal lures such as a Deadly Dick as fast as possible. Unfortunately nothing have been caught, but the situation and the method happily reminded me of how my fishing buddy and I had caught the false albacore in New York (How are you, Val?) .
