You always remember your first...
...striper on the fly.
As you can probably see from my reserved demeanor in this photo, I was a tiny bit happy about catching my first striper on a fly rod. This fish was caught off the coast of Virginia Beach, Virginia after a full and very successful day of trolling gear with giant lures. When it came time to pull in the lines our Captain, Danny Crabbe, let me have some time to cast my fly rod and I was able to hook up with my first fly caught rockfish on a chartreuse and white clouser minnow. This was by far the smallest fish of the day and for me the most exciting.
