Do you love big bluegill?
Suppose you moved this winter, to an unfamiliar area where you don't know anybody and have never fished. How would you look for good bluegill waters? How would you test them?Continue

Many of the bg's I've caught in the last few days seem to me to be lighter in color. Do they change color with the seasons? We've had several days of cool nights and days - it's fall, after all. …Continue

Could we have a group of photos and instructions for great bluegill flies. I'll post one that I just made and that was good in my pond yesterday. More?

When I was young, I did a lot of fly fishing, mostly for trout in western waters. Then I just worked, for 40 years. Now, I've retired (again) and am serious about fishing again. I'd like to become an expert bluegill fisherman. That 10-incher I mentioned taught me that a BG that size on a 4-lb test leader was a thrill equal to the largest trout I used to catch. And, around central Iowa there are many more Bluegills than trout.
I want to learn how to find and catch Big Bluegills - big enough to eat. That's what I'm here for.
I'd like to hear from Bluegill fly tyers. There are so many patterns in books and on Web, but I can't believe that all are successful. How about tyers in midwest that have proven favorites?
Pictures would be nice.
