Bluegill Bug

The most underestimated gamefish there is. On light tackle a good size bluegill is pound for pound one for the piscatorial world's great fighters. This little bluegill popper fly is just the ticket for drawing angry strikes on top. Want to teach a child to fly fish. Bluegills and this fly are the ticket for getting them excited. In red/white, black, yellow.Size: 12.

"This may seem strange when you can by these at just about any large grocery store but, these are special. The quality is top notch and worth the price. They will far out last the cheaper ones."

"This fly has really produced some nice bream and panfish for me when the it has warmed up for me. Lately i have been fishing and tying these flies in black with a little flash with great results. Give them a try in shallows around cover and this fly will put you on fish."

Why Isn't This A Top Fly?,
June 3, 2008
By: Boulder
from Blue Ridge, Va
"This is, without a doubt, the best blue gill fly ever. I've tried worms, lures, but none of these outshine the orvis blue gill bug. One day, I caught 20 blue gill in about an hour and a half.
PS- Try the yellow. It works best
