Fishing lights 漁り火

2014.06.23 (Mon)

fishinglights

These lights are used by fishing boats to lure fish at night, and are visible from the shore. The lights of the summer squid-fishing boats can sometimes line up across the horizon. Along with white squid, said to be the best of the types of squid, this is a summer feature you don’t want to miss.

漁り火とは、一般に釣り船の集魚灯の光が浜から見えるものをいいます。夏のイカ漁の漁り火は、水平線が灯(あかり)で一直線になることもあります。イカ類の中では一番おいしい白イカとともに夏の風物詩となっています。
