Bowfin, Amia calva


  1. Dude, I caught a bowfin last year in Florida and it fought like hell. It jumped,took me to the reel, tried to bite me when I took out the hook. Strong jaws and nasty teeth. Badass ancient fish that needs more proper respect. I hope to get another shot at one.

  2. ha! why do you think I left it in the net?

    That badboy was trying to gnaw at my hand. I had to unhook the fly from outside the net. Wish I could have gotten a better photo, but I didn't want to lay the fish on the ground out of the net, and it was way to vicious to grab.
