Default Re: Bluegill and Crappie

I landed the 11" green sunfish in my avatar on the same olive beaded bugger described earlier while fishing for smallmouth and bluegill. It's a great fly for that application. I've also had some success recently with a black foam gurgler with silver flash tail and a green flash underbelly. It floats much better after many casts and fish than the micro popper and it's quite a bit more durable. Here's a larger picture of that pretty fish. He put the cookie cutter smallies and gills in the pond to shame (If he had a bigger mouth he probably would eat em)

Winston Rod, Ross Reel, Green Sunfish...priceless!

Cliff, last week (before the cold snap) I tried a similar nymph...basically a rubber legged Hare's Ear. It showed good promise, untill I lost it on a snag of mono stuck to the bottom. The catfishers and bass casters leave a lot of that trash in the lake. Real shame.

Nice! I bet if you can get into a bunch of those it would be a hoot!

Could use any other setups that you would like to suggest. Keep it simple as I have restricted use of my fingers.

during the fall i've had alot of luck with ant and other smiliar dry fly arrangments on blue's and crappies at our pond. wolly buggers work really well also just make sure to weight it so it hovers on the level the fish are at.
