After two years of sporadic hacking at trout streams, I decided to get focused. Based on some advice found in this thread: http://www.glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=224774 I went to a small lake near my home to try for Blue Gills. I started with a spinning rod to find a good spot and make sure they were biting. After landing 3-4 small ones, I broke out my fly rod. Instead of a fly, I attached a small hook to the end of the leader and baited it with a piece of nightcrawler. On my second or third cast, I caught a small blue gill. I got 4-5 more beofre it got too dark. It was great. At one point I took off the hook/worm and tried a couple of different dry flies I had in my tackle box, with no results. I think the key is to get some wet flies that will sink, since the fish weren't hitting on the surface. Can anybody give me some advice on what kind of flies to use for Blue Gills? Thanks in advance.
