We hear this question over and over again.
The answer might be sitting in front of us and we don’t even see it. This magic bullet is also a hell of a lot of fun for the seasoned angler as well.
What is it, you ask?
It is Lepomis macrochirus, more commonly called a bluegill.
No matter where you live, there are probably some of these little gems swimming in a pond or lake near you.
Let’s face it, trout fishing can be hard and often a barrier to getting new fly anglers off to a good start.
There's nothing better than the humble bluegill to ensure a new fly angler has a great experience and gets put on the path to success.
