size 18 Black Killer Bugger Fly Longear Sunfish Walnut Creek, Blanchard, OK

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.

"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.
