Default Finally made it to the pond

For the last two months, rain and my wife's back surgery, have kept away from my fishing hole. Yesterday. Shirley insisted that I get out of the house and go to the pond. She is my fishing buddy and loves to fish. I admit that the main reason for not fishing is that she couldn't go.
The pond is only about 400yds. from the house. It's not very deep, 10' max, and the size of the fish is nothing to brag about. I fished about 4hrs. and caught about 20 fish.
here are a few pics.

Great looking fish! I am from Gastonia originally and wish I could make it that way to fish more but life keeps me local.

Is that a Bully's bluegill spider in the first couple of pics? If so how did you fish it: strip or twitch, indicator or no indicator?

jor fly, that is a Bully's spider. I fished it as a dropper about 18" below a #10Parachute Adams. Cast, let it sit for about a 10 count and twitch a bit. Then a couple of 6" strips. Then recast.

Sweet! I wonder if dropping it below a popper would work?
