TenkaraBum Challenge - Blacknose Dace
by Chris Stewart
(New York City)
Went to a brookie stream expecting to catch a brook trout, but hoping to catch a blacknose dace. The dace came first (actually caught two dace but only one brookie). Both were caught on a size 26 black Killer Bugger with a 1/16" gold tungsten bead, which proved to be the star fly of the day.

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