Thanks for all the advice.
I honestly haven't fished warm water (fly fishing or otherwise) since moving here from VA almost 9 years ago so I'm pretty clueless in that area. Should I be using the same flies I'd use for trout?
I did catch a couple bluegills fishing below the special regs area on the tully and they didn't seem to hesitate to take a PT, caught enough that they were a nuisance.

If I had to start with something on a pond for pan fish, it would probably be a Sneaky Pete popper or something small like that. The top water action should make it fun. Easy to see too. Good Luck and let us know how you make out.

Brook Trout are God's way of saying everything is going to be alright.

Try a small to medium popper with pheasant tail dropper.

I gave my friend the option (with a warning that trout would be tougher to catch) of warm water or trout fishing and he chose trout. With water temps. down a little on the tully we went out for a couple hours today. He didn't catch any trout, but he got a few bluegill and little smallies.
He had a blast! We are planning on going out next week to get him equipped so I don't have to use my old $20 walmart rod when we fish together.
In short, I have gotten two people addicted to the sport this year.
