Toyama Fishing Trip

After postponing my departure due to the untimely arrival of Typhoon Fitow, I am booked in for my now annual fishing trip to the beautiful Toyama Bay, on the Sea of Japan. I greatly look forward to not just the fishing, but also sampling the local specialties, including delicious ‘Tateyama’ sake and the autumn catch of so-called shiroebi, a type of prawn found only in the Bay. The photo is of a tilefish snagged during my trip last year.
