TenkaraBum Winter Challenge - 14" Rainbow - 2.5" Bass Size 32 Hooks

by Terry Farmer

Finally got on the board! There's quite a learning curve with size 32 hooks. "Easy Does It" is the rule for tying, hooking and landing fish with these tiny flies. The rainbow is a solid 14" (measured)and caught with my Nissin 380 Honryu. The little Bass is 2.5" and caught with my Nissin 190. This has indeed been quite a challenge. I'm waiting for the mosquito fish to reappear to reduce my smallest entry even further. Good luck to all, we still have a couple of months left!
