Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Ok, here it is.  The Illinois Smallmouth Alliance is holding fly tying dates once a month during the winter months.  Would there be any interest from you guys in central IL?  Most of the time there is a featured tyer and he or she will show how to tie a specific fly or a certain technique.  All in all it's a great time and if you're not careful, you'll learn something.

I am working on a few dates with another guys and he suggested that we all get together and we can work on some panfish flies also.  

Just wondering?

January 27, Sunday ...(1-4 PM)...  TOP WATER FLIES, PIES, And BLUEGILL GUYS.  No football this weekend and so we’ll be tying some of our favorite surface flies and poppers and ordering pizza.  We’ll have our Crease fly cutters, Kreb’s popper cutters, and some pre-formed popper bodies for you to work with.  We have also extended an invitation to the BigBluegill.com guys and so hopefully we’ll have some neat new patterns we can learn from them when fishing for that other sunfish species.
