A Genuine Micro Fish
by Ted Naydan
The other morning I just caught the smallest fish I think I’ve ever caught so far. It’s a baby chub or dace, I can’t tell. Just over the size of a penny, I’m sure it would fit on a Japanize Yen coin. Caught on a Gamakatsu “ultimate” Tanago hook, that I completely removed the snell from and tied a Varivas 10X Tippet directly to the hook.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
