TenkaraBum Winter Challenge 5" fish on a size 20 hook
Why do I want to switch the kebari when a size 16 black killer bugger is working? Because this challenge is not over yet. I felt a little bit guilty last time as I used a SJ worm; this was big for the hook size. I brought a size 20 Ishigaki style kebari this time, but it did not produce. So, I switched to a size 20 micro egg and fished for a couple of minutes and caught this one.

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.
