Turned out nice again!

My birthday-fishing trip was a little moist.

Caught some cutlassfish, which a friend (a professional sushi chef) turned into possibly the most amazing sushi on earth, literally.

In the end I gave most of my catch to a friend and kept just enough for my own consumption.  These were stored in my new shiny arctic-cold cool box and disposed of at home as tenpura and kobujime.

Thanks as always to Esamasa-maru, sailing from Haneda!

Poison…poison…poison…tasty fish

Sorry for the radio silence, been busy on many fronts including moving house and lots of other things.  I am however alive and well, and occasionally fishing and cooking a lot! Thank you as always for reading my posts.  There will be a couple of surprises in 2018 for regular readers, I do hope you will keep following my blog.

Haze rod baptised

Although it has been in my cupboard for a few years, I finally gave my good haze rod an outing; or, as the local anglers would say, show the rod the water.  After the demise of the tip of my own home-made rod I decided to give this one a go.  It is by far the best rod, or perhaps the one with the most work on it, in my entire house: it was built many years ago by my rod making teacher’s late teacher. Thankfully I had a good day on the water, catching a huge number of haze gobies with it.  Of course it would never do to not catch anything on a rod’s first outing as the bad luck seems to stick – an unlucky rod.  The fish caught with this rod were disposed of in the orthodox manner, mostly tenpura.

More goby fishing (and I baptised a new rod)!
