  1. Great report, nice fish and best of all fishing time with a friend. Doesn't hardly get better than that! Thanks for the report and pics, well done.
  2. Wow, classy and practical. Awesome job on creating your vision. Kudos
  3. Wow, FULL DAY! Rest up and tight lines.
  4. Woohoo ! Post some pics and details if you get a chance. Would love to hear some tales of the "Battle of the Bream" Tight Lines and safe travels.
  5. Stonfo still makes one for 8 spools.
  6. Big Gills can be just as wary and selective as trout. I have my most success fishing top water early in the morning and in the evening. I love fishing top water and watching Gills with their backs out of the water chasing down a gurgler or popper. All that being said. wet flies would be my first choice for a June, July, August, September Bluegill trip.
  7. If you can S T R E T C H your budget just a little, I like this vise from J Stockard. https://www.jsflyfishing.com/js-tools-ez-rotary-vise
  8. Agree 100% cause I hunt for "The Bigguns"
  9. Whoa ! Nicely done is an understatement.
  10. Cap Spider Gill Getter Red Fox Squirrel Nymph Hum Bug and I am excited to try this new one a Red Tailed Monkey Butt and other color variations of the same
  11. My sentiments exactly. Big gills can be every bit as wary and selective as the best of 'em. Small'uns not so much.
  12. Denduke, sorry but where is that? Is that Walmart?

  14. This is really a "Gill" getter, tied some last year and it was "lights out" on the water. Tying a few more for this year and for some friend's boxes. Simple but effective.
