    I havent fished with fly's for gills in years,Though I am trying my hand at flyrodding . I used to use flys behind spin bobbers and did real well with a black ant pattern.

    my favorites for gills are small poppers in either chartruese, yellow or black. i have always been able to catch gills on these when the weather wars up and they move in areas around weedbeds or are shallow.

    Poppers are my number 2 choice. First, I would use any spider looking fly, one with those long rubber legs. Not often I fail with that one.

    Try using just a piece of Berkley PowerBait Honeyworm or Wiggler in white.

    Mostly a combination of mosqitoes, black ants and poppers. Too many good one's to list really. I need to get busy and tie a bunch up for summer.

    I don't know what Mike uses, but the ones I have are called mosquitoes.

    I think I got them from "big Y fly" But most times I get my flys from "Little River Outfitters" on account of I know the folks who tie them.

    Yes, they both have websites.

    Unless you want to send me your email, you are going to search them. This board is finicky about posting adresses of other sites.

    Big Y has the skeeters.

    Black ants & gnats; I've probably caught as many gills over the years with them as anything, but nowadays I use micro-jigs alot.

    I have had my best luck and most fun fly fishing for bluegills using top water spiders with long legs like Kutter said. I have personally had the best luck with the ones with yellow bodies and black legs. Your mileage may vary. I also have used poppers and black ants with success.

    i have started to use my flyrod to catch most of the gills i keep for bait. about any small popper or foam fly work great. i was out of flys on day last year and took some small pieces of yellow foam and tied a few rubber legs, pieces cut off a bass jig on a #10 hook and caught a bunch.

    If it's a warm day and they won't hit anything else, try the smallest black midge you can buy.

    I love to get them with a popper but they rip them apart to fast so after 2-3 poppers I go to a Black Ant or most any Mige.Iv been Tying for 30yrs so Iv got an endless supply...........
