Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Looking around in the barn and found that fly rod that I didn't know I had. I was going to go to Bass pro and get a new fly rod so that I could learn how to use one. Lucky for me I went to the pole barn first. I don't know a thing about it but hope it will be good for gills and sunfish. It's a Gander Mountain Guide Series. I tried to look it up and found no info so i'm thinking it must be discontinued. Its a Gander Mountain Guide Series- Plateau PL9044 9' line wt 4. If anyone can tell me if this is a good gillen rod and maybe what these different number mean let me know. I know nothing about fly rods this is a whole new can of worms for me.

Thanks for the comeback Flyboy. what does WF F mean you forget you are talking to a non talented rookie.

I joined the fly rodders earlier today if any body can help it should be the people who use the equipment over and over again. I'm sure they will help me to get started.

Dick,

Gills are fun on rods from the ultralight 000 - 5wt.  the PL 9044 stands for what you stated (9' 4 wt rod).  if you have a reel capable, get a good 5 WF F line (good lines are kind of pricy, but will shoot through the guides better and make casting a lot less frustrating.)  Hope this helps, feel free to message me when any further questions and I'll do my best to help you!  Tight Lines!

Dick I wish I could help you, but I am woefully ignorant when it comes to fly fishing. Hopefully, someone will step in here and give you a hand. What about it flyrodders? Share your knowledge with those of us unaccustomed to the long rods.......
