Default Re: Bluegill Flies

The local stream has a HUGE population of red-breasted sunfish and bluegills. My go-to fly has been a Green Weenie, but they just don't seem interested this year....???? Fortunately, they hammer a bead head GRHE, a green foam bug that I tie, and small EHC's. The bigger fish will often just swipe at the larger dry flies, but the little ones will get themselves hooked on larger foam bugs I use for smallmouth. The red-breasted sunfish hit so hard on this stream, I often think that I've just hooked a smallmouth. They are insane fighters, and I love them.
