Feb 22nd, 2013 -Chiba, Japan

魚捕獲に対する熱い情熱で知られるカワセミ氏が、2月21日午後2時15分頃、千葉県の上座公園で彼が夢見続けた夢の魚を捕獲することに成功しました。インタビューで今の心境を彼は、とても誇らしく歓喜に満ちていると語りました。

Mr. Kingfisher, known for his life-long passion for catching fish, finally catches his dream fish at Jyouza park in Chiba, Japan. In the interview, Mr. Kingfisher says he feels extremely proud and overjoyed.

カワセミ氏が捕獲した魚は彼の体とほぼ同じくらいの大きさの大物で、魚を呑み込むのに30分くらいかかったと彼は話します。普通彼が捕まえる魚はこの魚よりもずっと小さく、こんなに大きな魚を捕まえたのは6年ぶりだそうです。特に近年では魚の平均サイズは小さくなっており、川、湖や海での魚の数も減っています。生魚とあうお酒はなんですかというリポーターの問いに、「日本酒もいいが、生魚とあうのはやっぱりキンキンに冷えた生ビールやがな」と彼は嬉しそうに話しました。魚を加えた姿の肖像画を地元の画家に描いてもらったと彼は至福の表情で語りました。

The fish was almost as big as himself, and it took him about half an hour to swallow the fish, he says. Fish he catches is usually a lot smaller. He hadn’t had a fish this big for 6 years. Especially in recent years, the average size of fish is getting smaller as well as the number of fish in rivers, lakes and oceans. “Even though sake is very good, ice cold beer is the best with raw fish,” he gladly answered to the reporter’s question “what’s the best alcohol to drink with fish.” He told the reporter with a blissful smile that he got a portrait of himself holding the fish done by a local painter.
