Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I just received mt parcel and I was blown away by what was in it! I really don't know what to say, there is so many awesome things in it, I have never seen so many flies before. I just want to say that I am really grateful to all you awesome people who took the time to make and send me something. The flies are beautiful, some of them are too amazing that I don't think they deserve to get hung in a tree by me! 

For the first time I have a problem! Which fly am I going to use? Looks like I am going to be doing a lot of fishing for a long time to give each fly a try! 

Just want to say thank you to every one that contributed to my parcel!

MATHEW GLAD you recieved your package all right , and no problems.... I think Carl was the handy man here and deserves the recognition and the get up and go to get it all together and mailed to ya .

  Don't know who masterminded the idea ,either Scruffster, Carl , or someone else. It makes no difference really , but I know Carl was instrumental at getting it to ya . All the rest of us are just waiting now for all the pics to follow !!!!!!

 TIGHT LINES TO YA BUDDY

  " SO MANY FLIES AND SO LITTLE TIME"
           TOOTY

It was Carls idea to expand it to the group, Tooty.
I had been chatting with Mathew about his dilemma and had a bunch of flies to send when I mentioned it to Carl. He suggested I write the original solicitation, and he volunteered to process the "gifts" through to final mailing.
None of us knew how it would grow.
So, yeah, a big hats off to him for all his effort. He deserves it more than most will know.

hey david--  and tooty-- and everybody else who donated to Mathew-- as far as I am concerned guys- it was a joined effort!  david and I did talk about it one day- and agreed we should try to get as many who wanted to donate to Mathew.  I was just a collection point for the donations.  without all the donations for Mathew;; he would not have received as much as he did;;  so my hat is off to everybody!!  and many-- many thanks to all!!   besides--  the real thanks goes to BRUCE!!  he made this site;; we all joined it;; and were able to help out a fellow angler!!  so-- bruce;; you did good buddy!!

hey tooty- it took me out this past Saturday;; ran a little gas out of it; playing around.  on my fish finder;; could not find a single fish; ( proably wasn't  looking to hard at it either)).  some of my usual fishing areas are closed off  at the steam plant;;  have to look around for other places now.  did see some on the finder just as I headed in;; in 50 to 60 feet of water!  when I decided to head in;; from where I was;  it took me a little over 45 minutes to get back  to the dock!!    just a great day to be out after being cooped up this winter!!
