Garts Gurgler Panfish Fly
One of my go-to flies when the bluegills are feeding off the surface. This pattern is a modification of the famous Gart's Gurgler Bass fly designed by Jack Gartside.
Pattern modified and tied by Bob Haase
Panfish Emu Bugger
I designed a fly called an "Emu-Bugger" a number of years ago and this is the panfish version of that fly. We use it for youth tying programs because it is easy to tie and and catches bluegills like crazy.
