I took my son to a buddies house today to do a little fishing with him. Since he is only 2 1/2 the worm and bobber allowed him to catch his first fish (bluegill). We caught about a dozen or so and then he started to play with the dog.
While he was doing that I tied on a olive Strymph that I am tying for the smallmouth fly swap. Landed a huge bluegill. I was amazed that it was able to eat that fly. the hook is a size 6 2X heavy and 3X long. The hook seemed to be more wedged in his mouth than actually hooked through the mouth.
Oh well, I really like the way this fly moves and looks in the water.
