TenkaraBum Challenge - Western Mosquitofish
by Levi Cain
(Blanchard, OK, USA)
Size 26 Black Killer Bugger
I must say the western mosquitofish was a super difficult fish to catch on fly. I've caught plenty of eastern mosquitofish on fly with no problem. But the western just wanted to nibble instead of trying to full consume the fly. Needless to say I finally got one at West Bitter Creek near Chickasha, Oklahoma.

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