Most of the flies I see have tiny hooks that are sized for trout. Do any of you guys know an online site where I can order sinking flies that have size six hooks, or no smaller than size eight, that would be good flies for bluegills/sunfish? Will appreciate any replies.

Bream Bugs has good stuff. Don runs a fine little outfit.
Green Trout Fly Shop in Baton Rouge is another. I've attended a few shows, tied with Larry. Another fine source of warm water flies etc.
I'm sure that there are plenty more, but these two came to mind.

Thank you very much RRhyme. Appreciate it. Love that name, Green Trout Fly Shop. Edit: I see fly rods, reels, accessories, etc. on the Green Trout Fly Shop website, but no flies. Maybe I just know know where do look???

Went to the Bream Bugs website and ordered six Briminators... they look good and I've heard of them.

Briminators are my favorite flies for Bluegill. Also, go to Walmart and pick up some Betts Fancy poppers. They work great.

Small woolly buggers and pistol pete flies also work well.

The site says it does not recognise "Brim" flies. Wanted to compare the prices to those posted above.
Personally like JMoe, Briminators are my favorite fly but I also tie my own.
