Do you love big bluegill?
Its just that in my neck of the woods fly fishing season or top water bite doesn't really start til memorial day thru labor day... some sporadic top water bite could be had in September. largely gill fly fishing is sidelined until then.
Start out with an ultra light rod... Ugly Stick is fine for starters. 4lb line 2lb if you can get it. Some split shot and some small hooks and/or jigs. Fly fishing rods and reels are very expensive. It's a fantastic way to catch Bluegill especially Bull Bluegills... but see if you like fishing for them first before spending $$$$ on fly fishing gear. Bluegill and Redear are for me Pound for pound the best fighting fish there is... Once you've caught a Bull on light tackle you'll want to catch more. Start simple you can get as complicated as you want down the road. Good Luck... You're gonna Love it...
