Farmer's Fish Tales

by Terry Farmer

Went to some new water with my Nissin Air Stage 190 and caught this little fellow. I can't figure out the species, maybe someone here can identify it. I used a tanago hook tipped with a tiny piece of chamois leech. Great fun!

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.
