How Bout Them Striper!


I've been fortunate enough to fish for a variety of great fish. Big bull reds, monster pike, tarpon, jack crevalle, amberjack, king mackeral and a lot of stuff in between. But nothing gets my blood pumping like striper. Not sure what it is about them, but the second I hook into a decent fish my heart starts racing and my knees get weak. I love flyfishing for a lot of different fish but when the striper bite is on there is nothing better in my book.     

We had our first decent front push down this weekend. Lots of migratory birds high with the north wind to their back. Approaching cold fronts in the fall seem to always get striper in a feeding frenzy. The fishing this morning started off a little slow but my mid morning I was able to find a pattern and get into a few decent fish.

Fun Fall Morning

Mid October and not quite fall yet. Should be having some cold fronts start moving in any week now. Just a fun few hours at a local pond this morning with the 3wt. Nothing big but lots of small bass and some hand size gills. That yellow dink diver in picture 2 has been in my flybox for a long time and always tricks some fish.

Monday Movie; Carp

Fun day fishing for carp. Lots of fish up skinny that day. Really need to carry and do more videoing with the GoPro. But it pretty tough to fish and video at the same time, and all the cool stuff always seems to happen when the video is off. Happy Independence Day!
