I had another great striper trip. I even stuck one myself.

It was a great night on my favorite water with great friends. I am very happy to catch my first striper on my new Winston BIII X TH 11 footer. I used a 400gr Skagit Max short, an itermediate tip and 20 lb flouro. I used a large but sparse flat wing on a 4/0. I love this set up. It is light and powerful and I can make any cast I need.
Well it's been a month or so since my first Shad of the season. It sure was nice to get out and get into the thick of them tonight. They were on the chartuese and punk slut fly. I also had the great pleasure of taking s new fly fisherman out in the water tonight. These things are just damn fun.
Wow, thanks to Spey Nation for turning me on to this great short film. Entitled, 'Salmon River' by Philip Tartaglione.
I really enjoyed this move by Todd Moen.The movie featured fishing buddies Jakob Lund and Jeff Hickman fishing for steelhead in some epic pacific north west scenery. The fushing action is cool but what really struck me was narration about fishing with a competent partner. I thought of my fishing buddies and some of the gnarly trips we have taken. Watch the video here.
