Just the start

Carlos, I would bet the winning fish will be closer to 50 cm than 20 cm, and the hook will probably be smaller than a #20.

You're eligible, accept the challenge!

20 cm fish on a #20 hook
by: Blatt

Perhaps i know much bigger fish has been caught on a #20, i personally never took a 20 cm fish on a so tiny hook.
Nice challenge.

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.
