    Default Striper on the fly

    IMG-0427.jpgHey guys - while the smallies may be slow this year, stripers are still cooperating. This one from the Miles River last weekend on a #1/0 crease fly. Had to use my leg as a ruler, roughly 26" from the flip-flop, based on an optimistic measurement of my own leg later!

    PS, though I'm late to the party I'm grateful that this fly line group exists on SnaggedLine and hope we can keep it alive. Thanks to you Dan and Mark for giving it traction.

    That's the beauty! I flirt with my fly rod occasionally myself.

    Nice catch, Brookmonter!

    Those of you who wish to toss flies at stripers may be interested in joining me and members of the Free State Fly Fishers (FSFF) as our guests on Saturday, 9 September. I will be leading an FSFF outing to Kent Island where we will launch at Goodhands Creek. Trip details are found on this page of the FSFF website:

    http://fs-ff.com/index.php/calendar/...ands-creek-md/

    Note also that we are having lunch at Harris Crab House after fishing ends. Please PM me if you intend to participate or if you have any questions about the outing.

    Thank you,
    Mark

    That's a nice fish! I've never caught a striper on the fly yet.

    This is a good time of year to change that.

    Stripers have moved into many of our tidal creeks. They are hungry, shallow and susceptible to poppers and streamers.

    Good luck,
    Mark
