Fly Tying

Killer Big Bluegill Fly Swap

Recommended Posts

This is a swap for your favorite Bluegill Fly. Not some fly that you have caught some dinks on, but your go-to fly when you are after LARGE Bluegills. Wet flies or dry flies are all welcome. Bead heads, rubber legs, terrestrials, and foam flies are all generally effective. I will be tying the Swamp Monster. I've had good success with that one. The due date is April 31. Please be sure to read, understand, & follow all the swap rules pinned at the top of the swap and contest page. As always, you can join by replying "I'm in." and if you happen to know what pattern you will be tying, include that as well.

I am willing to go as high as 18 swappers for this one, so sign up & start tying!






Each member will need to contribute 19 flies. Let me know when you are ready to mail them out & I will PM you my addy.


We have 7 weeks in which to get them tied, so everyone get busy.
