Four years ago today BROTHER BRUCE welcomed me to this site!!!!! Been a LEARNING EXPERIENCE!!! About Bluegill and the different ways to catch them!!!!! The different SPECIES, and the different names for them all around the COUNTRY!!!!!!!! I have learned to use a COMPUTER, a DIGITAL CAMERA, and how to POST THEM!!!!!!

I have met a lot of GREAT FOLK that share in my ADDICTION to catching them!!!!!!! I hope one day to meet many of them!!!!!!!

I am a FLY-ROD fisherman only!!!!!!! Also TYING FLIES, and over the last four year have met here some GREAT TIERS that have introduced me some GREAT GILL GETTERS!!!!! 

So for my BIRTHDAY I have assembled a collection of some of my GO TO FLIES!!!!!! I would like to give them to SOMEONE here on BBG!!!!!!!! FOR A CHANCE TO WIN, all you have to DO is wish me HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and maybe SHARE what YOU HAVE LEARNED HERE ON THE BEST SITE ON THE WEB!!!!

Greghopper, what the heck do you call this greenish popped eyes fly of yours?

Comment by dick tabbert on September 27, 2012 at 4:30pm

Greghopper I don't know what that green buggy eyed thing is but the palmering job is great that will be my next challenge when I get some feathers.

Comment by Leo Nguyen on September 27, 2012 at 3:41pm

Greg, now that's a fly that I can see as a massive magnet for the stocked trouts (stocker) in this neck of the woods. It's just like the Berkeley trout dough. You nailed it!

The FINAL FLY for the B-DAY GIVE AWAY!!!!!!! One from the PAST!!!!!!

Happy BBG Birthday-!

Hey, I was going to write something anyway- but those are some nice looking flies, what an incentive!

I was going to say, glad to hear I'm not the only one here kind of new to computer stuff! It's a gas...wish I hadn't kept away from computers as long as I did. Although...it's still not as much fun as fishing! :-)

Happy Birthday Greg, Has it been four years, as a gift I  have arranged with the bluegill Gods to provide you with a big fish you will be proud of on your next fishing trip.  Fish On     LOFR
