A Genuine Micro Fish

by Ted Naydan
(Charlton, NY)

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

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.
