A fellow from Thomaston was given a gift certificate for a learn to fly fish trip with me for Father's Day. It seemed a shame to have someone from Thomaston not fish in the Saint George for stripers so I decided that I would try something new and take him striper fishing. I think that the most difficult part was teaching on the heavier gear and having to worry about what to do if a big fish got on. Needless to say it went very well in spite of a cold rain that started soon after we did. Scott landed several srtipers including a couple of nice ones.
Remember that in the last issue I mentioned that this was New England and if the weather was unsatisfactory just wait a minute. Well we had a short stretch of hot and humid weather followed by a return to the cold and drizzle. After enjoying a week or so of fine summer weather the switch came as a shock to the system. In fact I returned from striper fishing yesterday quite chilly, I could see my breath most of the morning!
