Spotted Sunfish

Spotted Sunfish

 Personal best Spotted Sunfish.  They don't get very big, so a "bruiser" like this just had to go in here.

They can't all be big ....

 I couldn't catch anything a couple of days ago, so I tied on a small nymph ... smaller than a usually fish.  And caught some fish, smaller than I usually catch.

Chell's Permanent Eye Fly

Chell's Permanent Eye Fly

Reading about eyes falling off, I wanted to create something that could not lose an eye. Reading about crease flies gave me an idea. It's still a project, so your final steps might differ from mine.

Chell's Gold Butt Brassie

Chell's Floating Ant

Chell's Floating Ant

A great, small floating bug that has drawn strikes from several feet away.  This pattern is not the most durable, only because the fish inhale this.  Getting the fly out of a tiny sunfish's mouth causes most of the damage.

Florida Copper Nosed bluegill

Florida Copper Nosed bluegill

 The panfish attractor continues to be my favorite fly.  I took home five this size and caught and released over two dozen slightly smaller.   You can see the eyes of the fly just below my thumb.

Chell's panfish attractor

Chell's panfish attractor

 Easy fly to tie that seems to attract hits from any fish in the vicinity.  I've caught a lot of panfish, bass and a few catfish with this pattern.  The colors and exact materials can be changed for whatever waters you're fishing.

Rio Grande Ciclid

Rio Grande Ciclid

 Texas native, now found in Louisiana, too.  Texas Ciclids are great "attackers" ... lots of wake and aggressive takes.  They fight strong at first, but give up easily.
