TenkaraBum Challenge - Striped Shiner
by Alan Luecke
(Kansas City, MO)
After catching the rainbow and getting that out of the way, only joking, I like to catch trout. I spent the rest of my time exploring a small section of the Osage Fork of the Gasconade river which is a few miles east of Lebanon, MO.
I was prospecting with a size 12 killer bugger and catching lots of sunfish, mostly longear, and then got into some striped shiners hanging around a riffle.

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