Default Re: Another bluegill fly question - sources?

25 buddies of mine and I have rented a private reservoir in the White Mountains. It is going to be a blast! Last time I was there I caught almost 200 Apache Trout in 3 days, 95% of them on dries.

Oh yes, it should be fun.

Sorry I haven't been able to post any pics of the magic fly - I haven't been able to check back here since I wrote last (sometime last week) - sold my van and finding a more economical replacement. Hopefully I will get back in the action after the holiday.
Have a great holiday everyone and hope ya'll can go catch some fish!

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet, but there is a fairly inexpensive and simple to tie bluegill pattern in the current fly tyer on page 20

Medic-

Welcome to the board. This is a pretty old thread (from 2006 I think), so you may not get a reply here from fshfanatic but you could send him a PM.

Just as a heads up though, clousers are usually tied with bucktail on size 6 and larger hooks.

They could be tied smaller I suppose with squirrel tail, or in a marabou version like this one (in size 10) :
Clouser Marabou Minnow

If you don't get any hits here, you might want to start a new thread if you have a particular pattern in mind and want to see if you can get someone to tie up a few for you. Or if you're looking for suggestions on patterns to use for gills, I'm sure folks can help you out.

Cap spiders are the hot ticket in a size 10 until they start hitting top water. Then go to foam spiders, miss prissys, etc.

Do you have a source for cap spiders? I did my first pan fish witrh the fly rod last night and had a ball. Now I need to stock up on a few go to flies. Used a brown wolly worm last nice with scuccess but I am sure I could have done bteer with the rigth fly.

Here is a source for cap spiders. I have purchased bluegill flies from him and the quality was excellent. He only ties a handful of different patterns for sale. All of them are for targeting bluegills/panfish.

Thanks for posting that. I knew Mike when I worked at BassPro in Grapevine and wow, what a great guy. Nice as all get out, and continued to share his knowledge and love of the sport during a LONG battle with cancer. The YouTube comments say he passed in 2003/possibly 2004. Given his appearance when I last saw him in 2000, I'm fairly shocked he lasted that long. I even kind of think of Mike as the TX equivalent of Gary Lafontaine.

Using a pedestal vise on a cookie sheet to catch everything is a simple and genius idea too. Glue some rubber feet to the bottom and it won't slide around or mess up a table-top either.
