Do you love big bluegill?
Been digging around the internet, looking for the common insect nymph forms in my region. I found one source that is perfect, listing all the taxonomic names. Pictures abound and my file is full. I have the four main types to tie.
Odonata - dragon and damsel flies
Diptera - aka, chironomids, blood worms, etc.
So now I'm a ding-danged entomologist! All hail the internet.
PS I dont know what a "wazoo" is, but stuff is always up there. Why not bugs?
Yea, hymanoptera larva is excellent, it's been catching bluegill for years LOFR
Dave, now that you are an entomologist, you need to tie up a hymanoptera bombedie, and a coleoptera scaribiadee
david get a small net and drag the bottom and the weeds,put some of those little larvae in a jar.many are too tiny to imitate ,unless you wanna fish sz 20s, or smaller.bluegill are caught on all kinds of things.
No float tube, just from the bank. That's why I use Carbon Graphite poles. I can reach about 18- 25 feet depending on the method.
The Sawyer is usually tied with pink gray and white wool. I like the size 12
When you get a chance, take a look at the Sawyer Killer Bug. The thing was amazing this year and good for over 200 gills. Pattern is tied with a bit of copper wire and goes deep. So far I've only been able to get them in the UK and one site in the US when they have them for sale.
