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. 572) Cartoon Fish at Etomo Harbor (恵曇港にてマンガフィッシュ)

No coronavirus case has been confirmed yet in Shimane Prefecture, in which I have lived since my return to Japan in 2014, and its neighboring Tottori Prefecture. I don’t know why. Both the prefectures are among the least populated ones in Japan. Maybe that’s the reason why. Anyway, I went to Etomo Harbor this morning. Strangely, there were much fewer fishermen in the harbor today. In general, the wharf between the ice plant and Edabo is crowded with older fishermen lining up at some regular intervals, but it was completely vacant this morning. I got bored. So I tried to catch colorful cartoon fish swimming just below the surface of Shinsinbo, one of the breakwaters in the harbor.
