Nice looking gills. I'm very jealous that you have a fishing area close enough to access during your lunch break. I've been dreaming of that scenario for a long time.

Its actually further away now that our office moved, its like a 7 minute drive instead of a 4 minute drive, or a walk across the parking lot to the creek.

Still not bad. It's extremely hard to find places to fly fish in eastern MA (Boston area) without having to be out on the water in a kayak, tube, or boat. Almost every body of water here is surrounded completely in trees and thick vegetation.

Nice gills Geoff. What rod is that ? I was out after work yesterday doing the same with my 3wt. Had one big fatty and a few average gills.

Some nice gills there! Is that Sage Bass Bluegill series rod? Do you find it to be too much rod for bluegills? I usually use a fiberglass 3wt for foam terrestrials and little poppers. Talk about a fun time!

Nice fish. Love the 'gills. Sad some turn their noses up on these great little fish. Got a 11.5" one on a popper once. Thought it was a bass for a min.

Nice. I just got a 6'6" bamboo 3# for small streams and bluegill. Can't wait to get it out.

I was just telling my wife how nice it was to fish during my lunch break today when I saw this thread. We have a pond where I work that has tons of bluegill and bass. No gills that big, but I saw a monster bass near the bank that we've only speculated might be in there.

I was using a 3 wt rod and those little gills all felt like monsters. So much fun!
