Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Saturday evening headed out directly after work to my favorite bluegill hole, armed with various colors of the Greasy Monkey fly. Since I'd been catching fish of late on my little brown bug, I decided to tie on a brown Greasy Monkey with a copper stripe down the side.  This was my prize.

Fished the brown one for probably another 45 minutes or so and not another nibble. As I was kinda just lookin around at my surroundings I noticed this: (See first picture)

An "old fisherman" aka Crane sitting on top of the hill on a pile of rocks about a 1/4 mile from the lake...Never a good sign!
However I put on a purple Greasy Monkey and began casting and casting, took a sandwich break and just about sundown got a great hit:

For the next hour, nearly every cast was catching fish, even this beautiful warmouth.

Dick, this is the one I tied instead of hackle tip I just use the hackle fibers!!!!!! I prefer the micro chanille,  and I use a braid for the stripe and gives it just a little FLASH!!!!!
