TenkaraBum Challenge - Western Mosquitofish
by Levi Cain
(Blanchard, OK, USA)
Size 26 Black Killer Bugger
I must say the western mosquitofish was a super difficult fish to catch on fly. I've caught plenty of eastern mosquitofish on fly with no problem. But the western just wanted to nibble instead of trying to full consume the fly. Needless to say I finally got one at West Bitter Creek near Chickasha, Oklahoma.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"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.
