Bug and Cricket
I took out the canoe and spent the morning working the edge of a local lake for bass and sunfish. I put on a fancy store bought cricket and immediately got a big hit. Unfortunately the fish was gone and so was the cricket (bad knot, sharp tooth?)
Tried of spending money I went to a Utah Killer Bug. Guess who took the bug?

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