    Addictedangler.. I used to do very well on crappie with the fly rod. Zonkers and basic white marabou streamers worked the best for me. I only fly fished for crappie till trout season came in so I was fishing shallow water. I was a fly fisherman for many years till 3 spinal surgeries sort of canceled my career. Can't wade or stand on a sloping bank very long so that sort of makes it impossible to fly fish. Still love to tie jigs, spinner flies etc. Thanks to the boat I can still get out there and wet a line. Take Care

    You can fish wet flys from the boat. Or use a water bobber and wet fly also. I agree on the white streamers. We fished Beaver Dam Swamp reservoir in January and the fish were in the shallow creek water. There were a lot of limbs in it from the beaver so letting any bait drop more then a foot or 2 was a problem. The fly rod was the best tool for the job. I tie a simple streamer on a size 8 3x long shank hook. Silver braided tinsel for the body and either white calf tail or white fox tail for the wing. This can be a killer in low water as does your zonker.

    Great thread and info. My Favorites:
    Trout - gold Kastmaster and size 3 rainbow trout Rapala in lakes; yellow body with red dots Panther Martin and frog with gold blade Rooster Tail in creeks.
    Bluegill - black or white trout magnet slowly retrieved 2-3 behind a bobber.
    Crappie - black and chartreuse Southern Pro triple tail tipped with a crappie nibble with multiple other jigs close behind.
    Walleye - Hot’n’Tots or gold ol’ night crawlers.
    Bass - size 7 black and silver Rapala.
