First Mosquito fish caught with Owner Tanago hooks.

Caught my first Western Mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis) recently during an Artlure Competition held at Roodekoppies Dam, South Africa.
Bait was a 1mm x 1mm speck of white rubber lure, cut from a bigger curly tail grub. I rigged this 'lure' on my micro Owner Tanago hooks.
I only managed 2 species for the day. The winner of the comp caught 7 species - all on artificial lures.

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