Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Finally got out with my new Greys Stremflex 10' , 2wt. Fly rod!!!!! Mid tip flex, single foot snake guides.... Not sure if it is the best I have, but spent more on it than the rest of them!!!!!!!!  Traveled clear up north about 3.5 miles to the company pond and made a few discoveries there in the process!!!!!!!

Started with sinking line and pink cricket with Betty Grable legs!!!!!!

The rod  casts like a DREAM!!!!!! First to the boat was green sunfish!!!!!!!!

 

with a small bass soon to follow!!!!!!

Went to the heavier Spoon fly handled it really well, with a spoon fed Crappie taking it!!!!!

The BlueGill in this pond are few and far between!!! I transplanted 4 males and 1 female several years ago, was having trouble catching one when a helper showed up and started pointing them out!!!!!I caught a dozen small females on small Zug Bug!!!!!

 

One small male!!!!!!! These are smaller than what was placed here!!!!!!! :-)

The big surprise was the last little guy I caught!!!!! The same time the Gill were placed here One male and one female redear came here to live!!!!! They were both 7" fish!!!!!!

I am going to love this rod and thank you Jim from BIG CARP TACKLE!!!!!!! I love the feel of new Cork but the plastic shall remain on the Handle til I catch an 8.5" or 9" BLUEGILL or REDEAR!!!!!!!!
