Well.now that trapping is almost over I'll be shifting into fishing mode. I'll open up my fly box and post up some that I've tied. Love flyfishing!

i figured out that craft foam and spinnerbait skirts make the cheapest and most effective designs out there

ahh yes, i've done something like that, however, i never seem to have any luck with traditional flies. i must have "special" panfish around my parts!

I could spend ALL DAY on a pond full of bluegill with a #12caddis/sedge... All kinds of fun and a great fish to eat also.

what i also do mail is make a fly the one you illustrated, but behind the hackle i tie a piece of foam. cut like a long skinny triangle, then wrap the hackle and the foam to the back of the hook, then bring the wrap back toward the head just infront of the hackle. then i cut off the top of the hackle and fold the foam over and tie it off. works great when the beetles first pop out in april

Most times, when fly roddin for bluegills, I tie on a popper bug of some sort, and a wooly worm, or black ant about 10 inches below the popper bug....sometimes ya even catch 2 at once!!!

While fishing years ago, I once made the statement that bluegill, cause they arent too finicky, would probably hit a cigarette butt. A friend of mine said I was crazy.

#8 aberdeen hook through a marlboro butt netted me 5 more fish that day!

ohhh, did i come across a good un for poppers, you take the cheap colored flip flops from wal-mart..... 4 for a dollar, and cut wedges out of the material, then you trim them up and glue them to a hook. add some hackle and a tail behind it, and you have a foam popper! it was in one of the previous magazines of FFG.

I know this isn't a fly or popper but I was fishing last fall in farm pond and used a black and charturse crappie tube jig. They sure tasted good.
