13 April 2013 - Before the tree ate the Red Tailed Blue Killer Bug

Saturday Bluegill #1

Saturday Bluegill #1

Got another three Bluegill before I caught a tree. I feel like I am cheating by nailing Bluegill (I ended up catching over 20 today - but on different flies), so I'll post the non-Bluegill fish I catch with a blue fly, and still post Bluegill but only if caught on a newly tied, different style blue yarn based fly. I read the rules so this is strictly voluntary on my part (and partly to make sure I don't take a 1000 pictures this year of bluegills).

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
