Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I don't know if fly throwers are welcome on this site. I fish mainly for trout, but I also like to fish for bluegills, crappie and smallmouth bass.  I always enjoyed fishing for bluegills and it's been a long time. I decided to start tying poppers and fishing for bluegill. I just realized I'm not sure how to dress the foam poppers I've made. I have them glued on hooks, but I'm not sure what to tie on the shank behind the foam. Looking at photos of these huge gills has me a bit intimidated. I've never caught them that big around here.

Bruce if you fish or not your more than welcome here on this site. We welcome all from the beginner who's starting out and don't know what equipment to buy to and to the angler who's frequents out 2 or 4 or more times a week. This is a fun site but most of all we hope a learning site. The reason it works for all of us is we share. We talk fishing of all types. This year I started fly fishing after 60 some odd years. I was like most it was first live bait then I advanced to artificial mostly jigs. Mater of fact I just got my Grand Daughter started on jigs this year and she loves it. So as we go on we try out different skills and skill levels and I can't think of a better place to learn than here. You'll find the people here are more than willing to share there experiences in great detail so all the info is out there all we have to do is listen. Then we have our forums if you have questions there's no better way to find that answer than to ask. Yes we have a great site here no mater how you fish or what you fish for I'm sure you will find lots of answers here. We can all learn and do so enjoy the site and your more than welcome here.

Thanks, Dick.
