PANFISH DREAMING - Neil - Jun 18, 2012
I grew up east of the Mississippi, thirteen years in upstate New York and seventeen years in southern Lower Michigan. While fly fishing for trout became my passion, I spent many delightful hours watching a bobber dance while a fat bluegill or a slap-sided crappie tasted my bait. My older brother Robert and I owned a 12 foot aluminum V-hull with a 5 horse motor and we spent countless hours fishing the numerous lakes around our southern Michigan home. In time I discovered fly rod poppers and rubber spiders, but the targets remained the same.
