More Bluegill

by Vic Velasco
(Reston, VA)



Thursday after work session at the lake. I was casting a size 14 brasshead green weenie and the action was slow - three takers in 15 minutes. I changed out the fly to a blue killer bug with a short tail (same yarn tied on before the wraps start). The action picked up! Seven takers in 15 minutes. I only took pictures of 5. Nothing like a little tug-o-war to shake the work off you at the end of the day

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

"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653

"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.
