According to this story on Worldrecordsacademy.org, Kentucky angler Andy Pelphrey is the new Guinness record holder for catching the smallest fish ever on rod and reel. That's it in the photo. It's a blacknose dace and, frankly, it's a little funny looking to me. If we were talking about a weight record, I might suggest Pelphrey shoved a split-shot down its gullet to boost the poundage. Kidding aside, the dace measured 2.4 inches and was legitimately hooked in the mouth. Pelphrey used an itty-bitty piece of wax worm on a hook I can only imagine would be used to tie the tinniest of midge flies. Just so we're clear, this was no accidental catch; Pelphrey was fishing for the record and said it was some of the toughest fishing he'd ever done.
