The Story

Don't go all googly-eyed over this bright little fly. He came to work. Bluegills simply find the Big-Eyed Panfish Bug irresistible, and anglers love its easy-casting nature. Buoyant foam eyes keep the fly slightly above the water's surface, creating a nice wake action when stripped. Fish it on a floating line or, if you are feeling rather creative, tie the bug on an intermediate line and drop into the film.

Size 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Winner For Sure I bought 2 of these panfish bugs, and could not believe how much fish want to devour them. I have had giant bluegill attack it over and over until caught. On my first bug they ate the tail completely off and partially ate one eye, and even in this condition, I still kept catching more bluegill, and 2 keeper size bass. I just now placed my order for more of this awesome panfish bug. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bluegill Buster Have had great success with the chartreuse on pre-spawn blugill. Fished with traditional fly rod as well as tenkara with great success...(caught all I cared to clean for a family fish fry)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Had a front move through last weekend and dropped the temps back into the 70's The bluegills came alive and they loved this lure! Very consistent action and I had to use the pliers a lot because the panfish wouldn't stop trying to inhale these things. The misses were even more fun, as the fish refused to give up on this bug and kept trying to hit it until they finally got hooked. I came home and immediately ordered more.
