While surfing the pictures my friends sent me, I saw these two photos of hidden beaches in Japan. Once or twice in a year, I try to spend a week or more in Goa where the scenic beaches always keep me calm and relax, however this year I didn’t get an opportunity to go there. Those photos remind me of what I miss this year. Perhaps next year I’ll be able to allot a week to have a relaxing time again.

While looking at the photos, I remember my Japanese friend telling me that they are near his house and at least twice a week he would spend his afternoon angling. Angling takes place in both fresh water and salt water. The angler is required to throw the bait which is tied to the end of the fishing line and wait till the prey is trapped; then the fishermen have to tackle the fish that is very aggressive and alive. The bigger the fish is, the better it gets. Usually fishermen used worms and snails as their baits but as times passed by artificial baits known as fishing flies were used instead of live ones. They reduced the risk of infection and also the trouble of catching them. These fishing flies were as effective in attracting the fish as their live counterpart where.

And what’s the best way to end the day than to enjoy the fruit of your “relaxing” toil, maybe in grilled or fried form and then wash it down with a fine scotch and more just like the Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve.

As the name itself suggests, BD Triple Gold Reserve is the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process. The triple maturation process which involves Grain whiskies and Malt whiskies separately matured in American Bourbon Casks and then blended together and matured again in Oloroso Sherry Butts for an extra longer period of time to give the blend a distinctive flavour and a delicate finish, perfect pair for the delicate catch of the day.
