Nice little Bluegill! (Or Green Sunfish?) I love these little fish on my 3 weight rod. They will hit anything - though oddly enough I've caught them on everything [b]but[/b] a popper - and their "fight to weight ratio" is pretty high. They're also good practice for detecting nibbles and strikes ...

re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - Bunsbert Montcroff
Nice! I've got a 350 dollar Orvis outfit and find myself using my 50 dollar Cabela's outfit more often than not. Have been doing much more technical fishing in pocket water with tons of brush, and the shorter Cabela's rod and lighter weight (my Cabela's is a seven and a half foot, three weight an...
