Default Blue Gill @ Alcoa Duck Pond w/PICS!!!

The fish are stirring around here! Due to my two days on the pond I have created a fly fishing friendsy. Kinda funny actually, two guys fishing with their plugs had seen me reeling in fish and decided to watch. So today they brought their rigs with them. Take make this funny I'm watching this poor kid lobbing this popper on about a foot and a half of leader. He asks "Man I can't get this thing out there like you can! Which is hillarious because I'm lucky to be putting more than 35 feet of line on the water. I look up to see his fly dangling a meer foot below his leader and I replied "Well that's your problem" To top it off he had some Sten 10lb line attached to his leader. So I ever so politely refered him to you all telling him he needed to seek the help of LRO. He clipped his line off and tied on about 9' of Sten and went back to lobbing his popper with a little more success. All of the better fish were schooling at about 30ft out. During all of this poor fellows mess I managed to land a better than average blue and he put up a good stuggle on my six weight! When I got home my father had called to let me know he was watching three fellows with fly rods fishing the duck pond in Maryville.

Any who here she is! She was as long as my handle cant remember if that's 8'' or 9'' either way a fat bluegill too!!!
