Heres a slider to try. The BoogleBug #8 BoogleBullet in the color Electric Damsel may be one the smallmouth bass and bluegill in your area may have not seen. Weve always thought of blue sliders as originating in Virginia, a state where fly fishing for smallmouth bass has been popular for a long time. Sliders move water without making a lot of noise. Some game fish prefer less noise but plenty of water movement. BoogleBullets do that and do it well.The #8 casts easily on a long leader with a 6 weight fly rod. Medium size bluegill can be caught with this size as well as larger pan fish and bass. #8 is a very useful popper. Whether you are fishing smallies on the Shenandoah, James or the French Broad, give this color a try. When fishing quiet water, try a slider. This bug should be in your box, just in case.FREE GROUND SHIPPINGORDER ONLINE OR CALL 865-448-9459Little River Outfitters is a fly shop and mail order company located in Townsend, Tennessee, a gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
