WARM WATER FLY PATTERNS
FOAM BLUEGILL BUGS
Pond Spiders are the ultimate Bluegill floating bug that has been around for many, many years. These are tied in a size (12) dry fly hook. Tied in an assortment of colors. I tie them in White, Orange, Yellow, and Purple! If you have a preferred color that you want just let me know in your order. Enjoy getting your Bluegills on the surface!
The Krystal Beetle has been a very popular and successful Bluegill pattern for us here at The Bluegill Bug! This Beetle pattern tied with Krystal Flash added in seems to really trigger the Bluegill bite when Beetles are the fly of choice, which is often times when Bluegill are surface fishing. These are tied on a size (12) dry fly hook. Do not leave home without a Beetle pattern if you are going Bluegill fly fishing.
Tossed Salad Bug:
The Tossed Salad Bug is one of those patterns that are a little different than your standard Bluegill Bug.
This fly features a Hair Wing (Caddis Style) and a Peacock Black colored body with Rubber Legs for enticement. In essence, all the things that make a foam pattern look delicious to the Bluegill. Therefore, the name Tossed Salad. This pattern is tied on a long shank hook (size 10). This fly has also produced for Largemouth Bass in a (Size 6) if you are interested in some that size.
Mini Hoppers are a Bluegill favorite on most ponds and lakes in America. These little Hoppers are designed to float on the surface and attract Bluegill even when the Hoppers are not on the water! Very successful pattern and quite popular. I tie them on a (size 12 1xlong hook). I also tie them in Tan, Olive, Yellow. Make sure you have a selection in your box if you like to fish the surface for Bluegill.
SOFT HACKLES & WET FLIES
Red Tag Soft Hackle:
Every so often, I will fish a Soft Hackle Wet Fly just beneath the surface or even down a few feet to where the Bluegill are hanging out. When I do. this is my go to pattern. While I have tied a lot of Soft Hackles over the years, none, have done better than this one when fishing for Bluegill beneath the surface of the water. Bluegills simply love this Peacock pattern with a red tag! Tied on a (size 12 wet fly hook). Do not overlook this old standard pattern when your are on the water.
BHRL Sheep Creek Special:
One of my most favorite nymphs for fishing lakes and ponds has been the old reliable Sheep Creek Special. This is the version I am currently tying and using that has added a Gold Beadhead and the ever popular Rubber Legs to the pattern. Results have been wonderful. This is tied on a (size 10 3xlong shank hook). If you fish nymphs for Bluegill you need to have a few of these around! Fished down on a sinking line for best results.
The Ambush Nymph:
The Ambush Nymph: The Ambush Nymph is being brought out of my secret stash of tested patterns with great success to be offered for sale here on The Bluegill Bug Shop! This pattern is tied on a (#10) Scud Hook, but, looks nothing like a Scud. Tied to represent smaller Dragonfly Nymphs in your water. With the big buggy looking eyes and rubber legs what is not to like about it. The Bluegill’s reaction has been nothing short of “Him Or Me, What is it going to be”. They ambush them before the Ambush Nymph gets them! Also, know to arouse a Carp or two…….. Get yours now!
BHRL Killer Bug:
This is the Bluegill version of the famous Utah Killer Bug that has been effective throughout the U.S. in waters near and far….. This version uses a Pink Hot Bead for the head for attraction and the addition of the loveable Rubber legs that Bluegill can’t seem to resist. This pattern is tied with a specific yarn that has incredible fish catching shades in it. You certainly can fish other Bead Head patterns for Bluegill, but, I don’t know why you would bother if you have some of these in your box! Tied on a (#10) scud type hook.
Yes, Bluegills love Streamer/Minnow patterns and this one is one of my very favorite. Tied in a (size 10 3xLong) as my main size. This is a great pattern to have on when fishing in the lakes and ponds for Warm Water fish. Technically, probably a Wooly Bugger type variation, and everyone knows your Streamer/Minnow box is not complete without some of these on hand!
