Black Killer Bugger Gallery

The Black Killer Bugger Gallery is a collection of the entry photos submitted in the TenkaraBum Challenge - What can you catch with a Black Killer Bugger?

I hope the gallery will help more fishermen realize that there are a lot of fish out there that they haven't even thought of catching, let alone caught or even tried to catch. They don't have to be wild brookies or wily browns to be challenging, and they don't have to be measured in pounds rather than inches to be fun. And very definitely, you don't have to travel to Iceland or Alaska to catch some challenging fish.

At this point, I have no idea what you can catch with a Black Killer Bugger - other than a very definite idea that you can catch a lot more kinds of fish than you would expect.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
