Ready for a fresh start.

Haven't posted much since last summer.

But it seems like I had to reach a lot farther than I did back then? Decided to just…See More

"They're made of small diameter line twisted up to form a taper. Very flexible, less memory, and few wind knots. All I use since I tried them years ago. I'd recommend trying one!"

We are all about Bluegill, Big Bluegills ( Bluegills, Sunfishes, Red Ears, Brim family) but not to stop there you will read about many different species of fish even some you may not have known even existed in the Bluegill world and forums with many picture to share, but our main goal is catching that ultimate giant Gill so we can meet that special goal and maybe some bragging rights along the way.
