First Mosquito fish caught with Owner Tanago hooks.
by Werner Nell
(Johannesburg, South Africa)
Caught my first Western Mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis) recently during an Artlure Competition held at Roodekoppies Dam, South Africa.
Bait was a 1mm x 1mm speck of white rubber lure, cut from a bigger curly tail grub. I rigged this 'lure' on my micro Owner Tanago hooks.
I only managed 2 species for the day. The winner of the comp caught 7 species - all on artificial lures.

"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.
