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.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
