Species #1 - Bluegill Sunfish

AHA! First on the board! Just a little bluegill from Central Park. After this fish I had a couple little neighborhood kids who took turns asking if they could unhook each fish and throw it back. I've never fished with a ghillie before and today I had two.

Starting my species list:

"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.
