Thanks Troutman you do pretty good with the camera yourself. Do fish that broke me off count, hehhe. My best on the fly was a Striper around 18 to 20 pounds.
I've spent several years chasing these fish with gear and have caught plenty of fish from 10 to 40 pounds. Stripers on the fly is a new endeavor I've been toying with on and off for three years now, more this year then any. The knowledge I've gathered from my years as a gear guy have proved invaluable in the pursuit. These fish are almost as willing to take a fly as anything.
65 pounds is a huge Striper! The state record is only 65 pounds 6 oz!!! Ralph Dallas caught it in the same river system I caught this one.
