a sardine

In the past, fisherman in Japan could catch a lot of sardine and it was very popular fish among ordinary people. But now it is not easy for people to catch it in their neighborhood.

I have heard that people can recently catch it in Onga-gawa river's mouth. So I tried to catch it last Saturday.

Finally I caught only one sardine but I was satisfied about the result because I got it for the first time in more than 20 years.

At the same time, I caught three gizzard shads.

I cooked the sardine for "sashimi" and the gizzard shads for "nanban-zuke".

Congrats on your catch!

I went fishing once or twice when I was young but never actually caught anything, so I hope I'll have the chance to go again sometime.

Watching or try a fishing day is one of my dream,so cycling to a quiet place and try fishing is not an impossible idea.I want to experience the feeling of fishing.But luck maybe something link with this activity or not,I wonder?.
