Do you love big bluegill?
Thinking about getting another fly rod, Like a 2wt 3wt or a 4wt around 6ft to 7ft long only for Gill's. But how far can I cast with such a small weight class? and also what size flies are suitable to cast?
Get a Winston TMF 4 wt. ---- a 2 pc. 8 ft. soft rod that is great for panfish. Come to Louisiana and try mine if want.
The Orvis superfine touch is a great way to feel every twist and turn. It's a bit hefty in the price range, but totally worth it. The Orvis Patriot fly is a great fly for bluegill too.
Just my 2 cents worth. I have a 6-1/2' #2 that was made by a rod building friend. I originally purchased it for trout on small streams after trying to work a 9"-#5 through the brush. Since I live far from trout streams, I started using it on local lakes fishing from a kayak. I have had a lot of fun catching bluegills with it and it works great in the kayak. Thing is if, as has been mentioned, you catch a big monster it is hard on a fish you may want to release. That may be the only drawback I can see.
