Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

With my son's middle school baseball season ending, I actually had some time today to test out a fly that I tied up during the winter months.  Got in from work and loaded up the kayak, grabbed my flyrod and headed to my favorite lake that has a good gill population.  Saw a few surface smacks as I launched so I had a good feeling my fly was going to be met with approval.  Paddled into an area that I knew had beds in the past and rolled out a cast and watched my fly land with a soft splash.  Ripples hadn't even settled when my fly was brutally smacked.  Mr. Bluegill limbered my flyrod up with a few circles around the yak.  And for the next couple of hours I watched bluegill, redears and the occasional bass ingest my fly.  So what fly was it?  My cricket pattern.
