Micro fishing is the pursuit of small commonly overlooked fish that are usually less than six inches in length. This type of fishing requires innovative and unusual angling tactics as many species rarely exceed two inches as adults. Understanding methods of micro fishing opens the angler up to a wide variety of new species of fish often overlooked with conventional tackle.  Micro fishing can also include, but is not limited to, traditional game fish.

With micro fishing you can catch hundreds of fish most anglers are unaware of. Since the typical angler catches less than twenty species of fish over his lifetime the possibilities are tremendous. The majority of fish species in North America are minnows, darters, and killifish that rarely exceed four to five inches. The darter comprises over half of the fish species in the United States.

The goal of this site is to educate fishermen and the general public about micro fishing.  Currently, little information exists in the United States on this subject.  Those who contribute to MicroFishing.com, seek to raise awareness of the recreation as well as access to equipment and resources.  Anyone with information or further interest in micro fishing is encouraged to contact us.
