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.

In the way of hats, I like the "Aussie Breezer" hats that LL Bean sells. I got one and my wife liked it so much she had me order one for her, too. Light, flexible, nice wide brim, the open crown really helps with cooling. Plus - and this is really important - it really stays put on my head. It rarely gets knocked off by the wind.

HEY DICK, at some time or other you wwwwwill get one stuck in your ear. Last year I was out with a buddy and he got one in the cartilage about half way up on his ear ! He was about yards away from me on the shore yelling TTTTOOTY HELP ME! I went to see what all the fuss was about and he pointed to this nice bead head bug he had impaled him self with.
  SImple enough operation. I simply bent down the barb and pushed it through the other side . Funny thing was you could actually hear the barb popping through the cartilage.
  One more item of the endless stuff you need. A GOOD PAIR OF SIDECUTTERS to simply cut off the end of the hook so you can avoid the horrible popping sound from the cartilage .
  ENJOY

Dick, Now that you are a FLYFISHERMAN, you have a rod and lots of good advice on a fly line and reel!!!! There is one more piece of equipment no FLYFISHEMAN should be without, a FULL BRIMMED HAT!!!!!! There are a lot one the market 2" brim up to 4" brims!!!!! Lots to chose from but a neccesity none the less!!!!!!!! If your fly should pass to close to the ears the wide brim will help to keep it from penatrating the ears!!!!! This is very painful and also teach you to pinch the barbs on you hook!!!! This I know from experiance!!! The hat also sheild you from the sun!!!!!

I use mine everywhere I go I can fold one side up and enter any Aussie Bar!!!!! Fold both sides up enter any Cowboy bar ( in Oklahoma that is a must)!!!!!!!!! Also fold the front of it up and you could be a member of F-TROOP!!!!!!! :-) I wear it mostly because I just look so darn GOOD in it!!!!!! LOL

Thank you Greg I'm checking every avenue. Wish I knew someone in the area that used a fly rod but I'm drawing a blank. I guess I have awhile to look It ain't like I'm going out tomorrow.
