Spring Gills on Top

First Gills of the Season



Tonight, the local waters finally gave up a little top-water action with the Gills looking up. Fully dressed in Spring colors, they fought just as bold as their looks. While the evening gave up a few small bass as well, the Gills stole the show.






Also was able to test a line I picked up from Cabelas over the winter on sale for $9.99, a WF6F Warmwater Taper.  Aside from leaving the water with orange fingers, it performed flawless, throwing everything from small Bluegill poppers to #4 deer hair bugs.




The fly of the day was the original chinless #10 Foam-Butt Caddis, tied with light elk hair.




A perfect start to a warmwater season.
