Continuation of my Bluegill story.
As I continued to fish with the same fly my entire time at Walnut Creek. I could see Longear Sunfish all over in the pool I was fishing. I would even see them shoot for my fly but miss it every time. But finally I was able to get one of them to take my fly. And its a good thing I caught him when I did because it wasn't much longer after I caught this Longear Sunfish that I ended up breaking my fly off when attempting to set the hook. Once I broke off I called it a day and headed home. But within an hour's time I was able to catch 4 various species of fish on the same fly. Or at least 3 different species and 1 combination of species in one fish.
