Default Bluegills are pure joy on a fly rod!

I left my pontoon home today because with these "severe" storms I don't want to be caught way out in a big lake when the lightning hits! And also for the pure joy of wet wading the shoreline with a 3wt. That is the ultimate fishing thrill IMHO!

I caught a bunch of bluegills, and a few small yellow perch. Even in mid afternoon the 'gills will smack a sponge spider or any nymph you put near them. This is why I love fly fishing for bluegills so much!

Most productive fly was a beadhead nymph (micro bugger). A lot of the 'gills were 8"+ which is kinda strange for July!
