Meadow Mouse

After I caught a couple of very small bass (as large as my lure), I decided to fish the other side of the pond again.

To tell the truth, this nice bass bit my lure just when I started to retrieve it. I thought "a tiny fish again", but as soon as I set a hook, I noticed it was different. She was a very good fighter and I had a very hard time to catch her. I used a Phillipson 3M casting rod for the first time this fishing season, and all in all it is a super good rod for me.

Oops, water droplets were on the lens!

Today's tackle:
ABU Record Ambassadeur 5000, Phillipson 3M (F562), Stren 14lb (Clear Blue), Heddon Meadow Mouse, Lucky 13, Zara II, Chugger Spook, etc.


  1. Good day,Kazz San
    Long time no see.
    I believe you got a very good rod!
    Though my fishing result is not still getting better during this season especially,
    I guess I need to try harder to go out to fishing right now.

    1. Kura-san,

      Thanks for your comments.
      I custom-built the rod by myself using a Phillipson 3M blank. It is marked as lures THRU 5/8 oz, and literally very good for topwater lures in 1/2-3/4 oz. I had some more of the same blanks several years ago but had sold them. I should have kept a few more...

      By the way, let's have a chance to go fishing together, shall we?

  2. To all,

    I'm keep writing this web-log in English to share 'what's going on in my life' with my friends in the world. But please do feel free to leave messages not only in English but also in Japanese.
