Here is a variant of the Griffith's Gnat to try for Bluegill - Griffith's Gnat on a Caddis Hook. It's simple and few material is needed. Used a Caddis Hook and Olive Tying Thread; did not have any dry fly hooks or black tying thread. smile

Cold front came and changed the pattern slightly.... noticed bugs flying about and ripples in the water where something was feeding on them. Seen this happen in the past after a cold front passes and things start to warm up. A hatch occurs and the Bass and Bluegill start feeding on them. Had a Griffith's Gnat on a Caddis Hook handy. Made a difference this round, catching a few, missing a few, having fun with all of them!

Found a dry fly pattern that worked at Bethany this afternoon.... Lucked out having this pattern in the fly box else would have struck out. Need to bring a net and charge the camera battery up more... posted report/video. No action shots, battery died right when we found the right fishing fly! Also, had trouble landing the trout without a net, tended to pull the hook out when lifting the them out of the water.

Very nice. Anything with peacock herl and grizzly hackle should catch fish and the curved caddis hook is a nice variation that gives you a bigger hook gap. Glad it's working for you.
