Fair is fair, however, so we might as well lump others in that group. Tarpon -- the majestic, prehistoric creatures that they are (and worthy fighters to boot) -- when you really think about it, is also a very ugly fish. Smallmouth bass? Ugly. A worthy fish, without question, and in my opinion, probably the most underrated quarry for fly anglers in North America. But ugly nonetheless. Largemouth bass can actually be pretty at face value, but they're so stupid, they're still ugly. Northern pike and walleyes are so sinister looking that it's hard to call them beauties. And bonefish? Well, let's call a spade and say that while they shine like diamonds in the sun when they're tailing on the flats, bring one to hand and you'll see that vacuum cleaner mouth is woefully misplaced. Bonefish are ugly, too.
