When most people think of fly fishing, the target species is usually presumed to be trout. This assumption could not be further from the truth. Hence, the Bluegill. These beautiful, aggressive, hard fighting fish are responsible for the transition of many gear anglers into the dark realm of fly fishing. With the bluegill having such aggressive eating habits, generic nymphs, small streamers, and dryflys will normally entice and fool these opportunistic creatures. This piece shown above was commissioned for a fly fisherman from California. The driftwood was collected in Cooper Landing Alaska, measures 12” in length, and makes a great addition for the fly tying room! Interested? Get in contact with me and I would be happy to discuss options for your custom piece.
