Default Re: Pond gills

I tried tying something different for 'gills today.
Yellow marabou tail, yellow chenille body, yellow rubber legs (6-8 legs), maroon/black variegated chenille shellback on a #10 hook.
No pics, but it worked for a few decent (8") 'gills this evening.

One took it when it hit the water and actually took some line off the reel (using the Echo 8'6" 4wt).

I think I'm going to start using more #10 hooks. The #12 & #14 hooks end up with me catching a lot of small (5-6") bluegills, but it seems like the #10s are too big for the little 'gills to take.
