Not a goldfish!  This gorgeous creature is a chuck of pure gold with shimmering scales and hues of emerald green.  We nymphed for these in Tiger Fish waters – how they survive I’ll never know. They are extremely spooky (obviously what keeps them savvy/ alive) and it’s similar to sight casting to tailing bone fish on the flats.   They stay to the sides of the sandy shallows eating water bugs and more.  They are glorious and challenging to fish for.  Hooking one is rewarding as they are not easy.  I lucked out and hooked and landed mine on the 1st try.  😀
