Gold Bead Killer Bugger Size 12 Smallmouth

This Smallmouth is the 10th species I've caught on the Killer Bugger from this small and shallow warm water brook.

There are another 2-3 species available that I hope to catch but it's getting much harder to target them because of all the sunfish. I never paid much attention to the large variety in this body of water until this challenge.

The Killer Bugger is an amazing pattern and will always be in my selection. I especially like it in size 14 or 12 with and without a gold bead and a plain weighted size 20 for the larger micros.

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