Book Suggestion Inquiry
Posted 23 December 2010 - 08:14 PM
I have been looking for something for quite some time now and just have not been able to find it, thought this may be a good place to ask if there is such a thing.
I am looking for a book which would discuss and show photos of the various bugs that would live in Michigan lakes "or lakes similar to those in Michigan", specifically the warmwater type lakes that would be suitable for species like Bluegill.
Essentially I am just looking to learn about the diet of Bluegills and get some ideas for fly patterns to tie for them, plus would like to learn a little something about the organisms that make up the food chain on these types of lakes.
Does anyone know of such a book or resource?
Thanks in advance!

LOL not really, you'd just have to spend the rest of your life as a tenured, pampered, piled-higher-and-deeper member of the intelligentsia at some institution of "higher learning"...
also, respectfully, I have seen times and places during major hatch periods where bluegills became as selective as any fish on the planet. It did not take an advanced degree to figure out what was going on, but if you didn't have an accurate imitation, they wouldn't even look at it.
