Got the Popper/Dropper rig in the mail this morning……set up my heavier fly rod (7 weight forward on an older 8 foot Berkley Cherrywood Graphite). Couldn’t wait…hitched up the boat and headed to a small lake that has been fairly productive. Used a very plain yellow popper with black feather dressing as my indicator and a sinking bumble bee as the dropper. WHAT A HOOT!! Caught a fish on the dropper 2nd cast, not big but filletable. Several casts later I caught a 9 inch punkinseed on the dropper and a decent bluegill on the popper. I can’t wait to set up a vaiation somewhat lighter for my 4 weight set up. Thanks for a great idea.
Good morning, I just wanted you to know that I caught my first fly rod bluegills yesterday evening. What a blast! I live on a huge, 18,000 acre lake that consists of swamp and open pools with lots of connectors in between. Lots of bluegills. Guys fish for them via traditional methods but no one uses a fly rod. I’ve got a feeling that I’ll be seeing others using them soon.
I just about have them all (Bullys Bluegill Spiders) and have caught a lot of fish on most of them. You have a great store with great customer service. Thanks for the good times.
Just wanted to share this picture with you. I have purchased many bluegill flies from your site and have enjoyed fishing with all of them. You carry the best selection of bluegill flies that I have ever seen.
