# 32 Killer Bugger Black Nose Dace

I caught this beauty from a tiny, rocky, high gradient brook in N. NJ. This was my second target species for the day and one that was a long shot. I never caught one in over 20 previous trips (Brook Trout were targets). However like many other species, it too fell prey to the deadly killer bugger. This time I used the new Tiemco 518 #32 hooks to make the catch. I also caught numerous chubs and missed several others.
