Lined Topminnow Fly that caught topminnow Dollar Sunfish Fly that caught sunfish

Always enjoy seeing multiple species of fish caught with a blue fly. So I figured I'd post a few pics myself of a couple species I happened to catch this evening (3 Aug 2013).

The sunfish is a Dollar Sunfish and in this area when they get to a large adult size they have some awesome colorations. The other fish is a Lined Topminnow. Both male and female look different from one another. For one the lines are vertical and for the other they're horizontal (as shown in the picture).

Both these little guys were caught while the fly danced on the water's surface, as if the fly happened to be an insect that fell into the water and was trying to fly away.
