Re: Bluegill Flies
My go-to panfish fly is a Madam X. Hands down this catches me the most and biggest fish. Something about the rubber legs I guess. Cast it out and let it sit a moment. Then give it a little tug. The legs will spread out then retract when you stop pulling. I have even caught pan fish in deeper water with this fly.
They are also easy to tie. Get a piece of deer belly and some rubber for legs and you are all set. I even have luck with my worst tied flies.
