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.

Hi Granddad I think that’s a warmouth. Not found in too many places in Wisconsin. You’re right, beautiful fish!

Big’s here is a picture of what I think is a hybrid Rock Bass Pumpkin I caught on Big M fishing for Gills. One of the prettiest fish I have ever seen!

Cant say there is anything else more fun, started fishing gills with the flyrod with my dad when I was 6 or 7 years old, Im 53 now and I still enjoy it more than anything.. the occasional crappie also makes it fun. My favorites are the yellow or orange gill getter and of course a good ol' popper, black or red and white size 14. Ive also started fishing a fiberglass 4 wt rod which makes it even more of a fight!

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?
