It's the fish we all started with, and if we have a love for simplicity and beauty it's a fish we will keep fishing for forever. It bugs me when people bash bluegills. What did they ever do to you? No matter how many huge salmon, trout, bass, or even sail fish I catch in my life time, I hope I never loose sight of what is really important in fishing.
So when the carp aren't happy at the Bell Pond, a they were today, I will stick on a foam fly and watch bluegills smash it around until it's no more than thread on a hook and I will be content.
