    Would you look at the SHOULDERS on that beast!
    Wow very nice, I bet that bluegill tab was as big as your thumb.
    Very nice.

    Thanks to all for your comments and replies...
    I didn't realize that warm water reports are where all the action is. Now I know...

    Very close...
    From a couple of other pics that I took, I determined that he measured just shy of 10". Now to hopefully catch a few more the next time out...

    Without bluegill I suspect that many of us who did not grow up near a trout stream would never have discovered fly fishing. They are awesome.

    You know what they say - if they got bigger you couldn't catch 'em.

    I'm guessing you got this one from deeper water? What kind of fly?

    great fish!! I love to fish for smallmouth and gills on the new river. I bumped into this thread way late, but I was also wondering about the weight of your finesse rod?? I have a 2 weight, and I am a big fan of TFO rods. Thanks.
