beleive it or not, i dont go out to find or pick on micro fisherman. the last thing i would like to do is spoil my days outting or some stranger for that matter.
my gags and teases happen amongst my mates and acquaintances. if i offened WalkersKiller, John F and others here, accept my sorries.
moving on, the closest i get to micro fishing or as the title states - this is why i micro fish - is with my fly fishing, locally or abroad, in small mountain streams. i fish with micro flies sizes ranging from from 22 to 28 and tippets of 0.08mm or 0.05mm in diameter 4 finicky fish, match the hatch thing and also an very important factor - the density of the fly in presentation. these small waters seldom produces big fish but mainly palm size and longer with the odd incher that gets in way. i fish these tiny streams purely because of its challenges it presents me with ultra light tackle. yet my game plan is and will always be to land that big boy in those difficult circumstances. having a micro fish yanked out of the water when striking is not nice, it flies in the air like as if i'm tempting another false cast for another presentation or having a micro fish skating on the waters surface for release. this is not a bad thing on the one hand because it removes a fish from a lay that could spook others in the pond and on the other hand the poor thing lands on the ground behind me or worse, it gets falsed cast a few times or spooks everything in that pond including my feelings.
over forties years of fishing, never have i found micro fish to be champion stuff but beautiful in looks and interesting to look at.
