Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Brother Greg and I are hankering to go wading and flyroddin' in a few small rivers soon .We want to target Smallmouths and Red Breasted Sunfish in particular . Never caught a Smallie  on a flyrod . I have some ideas on what I think would work but I'm just guessing  ;Mickey Finn ,beaded nymphs,Marabou streamers , Feather Streamers, Hopper ,Crayfish, and Hellgrammite imitations and Poppers .Any ideas out there from folks that are experienced with Flyrodding Smallies or other species I might find in a small river ,would be greatly appreciated .

As far as RBS I've caught them on foam Spiders, black and red ants  and Beaded Nymphs( my most productive multi species item).
