"My favorite bluegill fly is one that catches fish!..."

A more classic line does not exist.

Who doesn't love the top water bite? But I'm one of those that believes for every fish that commits to a surface poppers, five more wait below that wont. My favorite popper type lure is a foam gurgler spider. The Wilson "Sponge Spider" is pretty close, a good example of the type. I will give some "regular" poppers another try this next season, too.

But, most of the better fish Ive caught have come from below the surface on flies. Usually, this is on a nymph type pattern of some kind. I had good success with a chartreuse soft hackle fly last season, along with damsel-style nymphs. The Hares Ear, and North Fork style should work, as they are fairly generic. Ive also got a wicked stonefly nymph that has all the right stuff - plus some magic. Heres a pic:

Im looking forward to trying it.

Spend about 6 months tying flies and you will be able to duplicate almost anything you see. So, when you are ready you'll be glad you took the plunge.

Question #2: What sort of waters do you fish, and where?

I'm sorry you miss understood me. I don't know how to us a fly rod I was talking about using spinning rod fishing  top water rubber spiders. I love to fish spiders this way since I don't use a fly rod. If you check the  blog archives I wrote an article about (Fishing a floating rubber spider with spinning equipment). This blog shows how.
