Smallest Bluegills Ever

by Ted Naydan
(Charlton, NY)

This year I've caught a nice number of very small bluegills, around 75 that were two inches and under. They are fast becoming one of my favorite fish to catch. Mostly because each one is so different, and they're really very beautiful, like living jewelery. It's like catching tropical aquarium fish. They also can be quite challenging and difficult to catch, not like the adults. Here are some pictures I think of some of my smallest ones.

“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.


Warning:

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

Beware of the Dogma
