Thread: Bluegill - I'm impressed!

    Default Bluegill - I'm impressed!

    At last I got myself a bluegill - after decades of wondering what all the fuss is about with these little sunfish I finally got to fish in a private dam (near Stanford) stocked with them today.

    I was actually targeting bass at the time - hence large woolly bugger - but was delighted with this solid bluegill - completely made up for dropping some nice bass earlier. Species #52 on the same rod ... only 48 to go

    I went on to catch about half a dozen bluegills on hopper and damsel fly patterns in the weedy margins using a dinky 6'6" 2wt ultralight rod I built last week. The bluegills are a blast the way schools of them compete to snatch the fly and then put up a very respectable scrap for little midgets they are:

    Well done. Those big ones are awesome on light tackle.
    An honest fisherman is a pretty uninteresting person.

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and not only is he hungry but broke for the rest of his life as well.
