"I use about a six inch butt section on the end of my fly line and the mono, the #2 I use as a tippet and only about 18 inch of it. If a stick up decides it catch my bug I will only lose it and the #2. "

Notes from a Nebraska bluegill derelict.

Something came in the mail a couple days ago...

Christmas Bluegill Wishes

I would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all of the members of BigBluegill.com.
