TenkaraBum Challenge - Little Brown Fish

There was a small group of these in some still shallow water by a weed bed. They hit the fly aggressively. I could not find any more of them for the rest of the day.

Little Brown Fish
by: Chris Stewart

I suspect the submitted ID is borrowed from birders' "little brown bird", which refers to any little brown bird that cannot be identified without actually having it in hand (or maybe even on the dissection table).

This challenge is about catching the fish. Identifying them is requested, but not required. All I need to know is that the little brown fish pictured above is not the same species as any of Alan's other catches. Of that I'm pretty sure.

Different anglers could have different "little brown fish", as long as they don't claim the same species (whatever it is) twice.

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.
