I spent a couple hours this afternoon fishing for panfish on the flats. This time of year bluegills and perch move into these shallow water to seek the warmth of the sun. They also feed while they're there. A damselfly nymph and an 8 foot fiberglass fly rod were my weapons of choice. On a full flex glass rod like this one, even the fight of a small bluegill is exaggerated. Glass takes time to get used to, I haven't used either of mine for a while now and I made some mistakes that mirrored the fact that I've been using graphite all fall and summer.
