The early boat gets the bass, and that’s exactly what @mjzaleski and I experienced last summer as the sky lit up with color. It didn’t take long for the birds and bass to show us exactly where they were having their breakfast feast.

There’s something special about that point in an Albie fight when you can feel your rod blank bend down to the cork…

This past Albie season’s go-to: a quick-to-tie, hard-to-beat craft fur minnow that no Little Tunny can resist! Anyone else whipping up flies for the Spring Run?

This is what it’s all about. A few fleeting moments with a beautiful creature before sending her home.

Each of these fish carry with them the history and memory of their predecessors as they make their annual journey north along our coasts and into our rivers. These fish will return every year feeding in the same areas they did the year before, and given the right circumstances, so will their offspring. They may be small but they are mighty!

Bluefin Tuna on the fly?! What a day this was, chasing total tuna insanity while offshore with @soulflyoutfitters, @John.mcmurray.370, @tightlined and @troutvibe. Hoping we can reunite the band for a trip later this year.

A low tide with plenty of happy busting fish around makes choosing a target a fun roll of the dice while fishing the channel edges.

Looking forward to more mornings like this in ‘21. Chasing busting fish along the coast and jetties, just waiting for the next school to pop up.

Its pretty amazing how well these fish can dissappear into the seafloor up here. Perfectly blended in, waiting to strike…

There is a reason Schoolies are one of my favorite size classes of Stripers to encounter. Not only are these feisty and aggressive buggers a blast on the fly, but seeing them in strong numbers is the best sign that these fish are up to the challenge of staging a comeback!
