When my friendly neighborhood fly shop guy, Jason Owens showed me this photo of himself off the coast of Huatulco, Mexico I could hardly believe my eyes. Here was a 50 plus inch needle fish caught on the fly. Jason was fishing for dorado and sailfish when this four foot beast inhaled his blue and white seeker. It’s almost impossible to hook needle fish on the fly as their mouths are almost entirely made of bone and teeth. This was a rare catch indeed. So rare, they decided to eat it. Apparently needle fish is delicious and much to Jason’s surprise the bones of the fish were fluorescent green and blue. Strange.
