while at brush hollow fri june 17 2005, came across a large school of surface feeding bluegill and wipped out the flyrod to give it a go they atacked anything i thru at them but couldent hook anything they seamed to small so i tied on the smallest fly i happened to have with me a 10 or 12 caddis dry and after 20 or 30 hit finaly hooked 1 all of 4" long if that. but it was an honest flyrod bluegill

it was a great day of firsts and another great day on the water

got a pic but forgot the camera at the cabin

Cool, man! I like catching bluegill on flyrod, seems to work better for me than my spinning tackle for the little buggers.
You can see their tiny brains working: what is it? can i eat it? Naah, too risky....but HEY! it moved again! I gotta eat it!

As I've mentioned before, go to Pella Ponds, head to Webster Pond (just off the parking lot) by the little shelter, use any very small light-colored fly of #12 or less (I use a bubble, but a regular fly rod would do) and you can pull in a little bluegill or perch with every cast. I get a little ashamed at catching those tiny guys, but it's fun to get forty or fifty in a couple of hours.
