Just curious, does anyone besides myself fly fish for crappie, gills, bass etc. Would like to hear from you.

Flyrod man,

Yes i do. I learned from a great uncle how to fish with a flyrod and incorporate live bait. One method i use is a minow or redworm with #2 hook. Of course the poppers are always great for bluegill and bass. Got to be careful with live bait and i only do this one the fish are really on and don't require more than a cast or two for a good hook up.

I fly fish for bluegill and occasionally catch a crappie or two. I do a lot more flyfishing for trout though.

I flyfish for bream and bluegill, but I use a regular spinning reel with a fly under a float.

I built a St. Croix 7 wt 9' fly rod last year and use it for bass on my farm pond. I also have a 5 wt 9' fly rod I use for trout and blue-gill. I am going to use the fly-rods for crappie this year- either to roll-cast jigs under an indicator to shallow crappie or simply use them for a jigging rod by using a 8-9' mono leader and a 1/16 oz jig/grub. Both these rods have floating line. I think either one of these rods would be useful for crappie fishing the way I am planning, but I don't think I'll be able to effectively go much deeper that 10 feet or so jigging, due to the floating line. How do you use yours for crappie fishing?
