Default Bluegill Bully's Review

I purchased a bunch of different colors of the Bluegill Bully fly at the recommendation of this board. I have to say this is the best bait of any kind I have used for pan fish bar none. Olive and yellow seems to be the most productive. Last night I recorded the 65th fish on one fly that I fished as a dropper off of a small popper. The fly not only catches fish but is extremely durable. Most of the fish inhale the fly and I have to ruff it out which attests to the durability. I will be curious if this fly continues to work as the summer comes along and water temps climb.

Hi Tracker12,

Is your flies the same as the Bluegill Bully's Spider?

Take a look at the Pan Fish Spider I cam across looking for the Bully. I like it.

This is good to hear. I've tied a few of these up recently, but hadn't considered fishing them under a popper. I'm anxious to get them out on the water.

I use a Betts popper and then run a dropper about 18" off of that. Just cast it out and let the Bully sink. Strip and let it sink. Usually if i do not get a hit by this time I cast it again to another spot working thbank or area of cover. 98% of the time they hit it when it hits the water or soon after.
