Bluegills are MADE for light flyrods! I have an eight foot, two weight that I bought specificaly to fish for BGs at a lake in Northern Oklahoma (Osage County). I use it lots of other places, but it is perfect for this spot.

I'm digging those pants you Buddy has on.

I use a Sage 3 wt. for the gills down here in south florida and they bend it in half. I'd like to try a 1 wt sometime, it would be like trying to land a bluefin tuna on UglyStick.

gillbum here,

I've been using a 7-foot, 1-weight fly rod for all my panfishing and small stream trout.  The rod combined with  a Hardy fly weight reel seems made for gills.   Favorite fly for bluegills is a blue wing olive in size #14. Black gnat and mosquito are other favorites.  i love it when the gills are hitting on top.

It's an old Scott G-Series 6'10" model called a "Japan Special", kind of a rare custom deal as I understand it. Might try to get a pic of the blank label to post in my photos section. In this video, I was doing the filming/boat positioning, while my buddy, who owns the rod, was doing the catching. We'd rotate on each BG bedding area we fished that day.

Looks like a blast, where do you get a one wt rod.

Ah beautiful vibrations on a 1wt! What length? Have only seen it in 6'.

Nothing but fun! Not great with fly names, but it's the bead head nymph in my picture "flyrodgill" on my photo page.
