Seems like these were more common back in the day. After a long fishing hiatus from Bedok Jetty, I started coming back to see what I could find. Finally encountered one rather large specimen(about 20-25cm) after going through hundreds of the more common and more plain-looking Leatherjackets over the course of about a year.

Lovely species :)

This is definitely one of the less common leatherjackets, thanks for sharing.
