Looking for others who fish gills with a fly rod. I can’t imagine that pound for pound that there is any better fighting fish out there to take on a fly rod and I would like to know if there’s any others who share the same passion and ideas.

I fish for everything with a fly rod. You will always catch more fish with a fly rod.

 Really enjoy using small poppers whenever I can, love watching the different ways gills hit. Sometimes hard and aggressive and other times just that slow “suck it in”

Small nymphs copper John or a pheasant tail using a slow nymph type retrieve. No matter what it takes it just can’t be beat

Same here learnd as a kid on a bamboo fly rod,  used to.throw small poppers and surface bugs. Also larger ones for bass, was a lot of fun. Still have the rod sitting in a rack. Great memories.

Agree on both bluegill and smallies as perfect fly rod fish. What kinds of flies do you use?
