Another beautiful "fall like" day here in PA. The next two will get hot again?
I've been nailin' the bluegills and crappie with my 3 wt. Already the middle of Sept, and the fish are still on top at twilight?
The crappie still stay at the bottom, so the best fly for them is still a plastic minnow on a tungsten bead head jig.
The 'gills take a no weight micro bugger with gusto. A tip: I put a drop of Sally Hansen "Hard as Nails" on my micro buggers and leave in the vise for a few minutes upside down. This makes a clear shell on top of the bugger (it looks so real)
The fish are getting big in the fall. The bluegills are averaging 8" and the crappie around 10"
