The Gnat, Beadhead and the Popper
Tuesday’s trip involved using numerous flies to attract some hits from some early spring bluegills. I only got to fish a couple of hours, so I had to make the most of what was given to me. The fish today were in a sluggish hitting mode, from the results of freshwater, and some cool nights.
I did manage to land my first crappie using my 3 wt. and the black gnat. I always heard where there is one crappie there is more but not today.
My one bass of the morning using the Betts popper, nice fight on the 4 weight.
The beadhead grub got this female's attention. After a brief pause for the photo she got her freedom.
My one counter of the trip using the Betts popper; got to love landing these gills using the fly rod!!!
