No-No, Nunu!

Lining up near my feet, only a meter or so away, were Cornetfishes (or Nunu's as referred to by the locals). They readily took a bonefish fly as it was stripped in ready for another cast.

It is a cornetfish usually caught with small soft plastic white lures.. We catch it a lot in the Mediterranean, it's new to our shores .. They usually feed on anything resembling a fish chasing the and literally sucking them into their straw resembling snouts

It's an extreme closeup of a cornetfish. It looks freaky, though. =) If you do a wikipedia search for cornetfish you can get a better description.

Nice Picture, Steve, with good effects.
