First stripers. First EnCon encounter.

Yesterday evening was raw and windy and and at times rainy, but there were a few stripers out and about. It always feels good to break the seal. I even played around with surface flies (deer hair head and the good old Gurlger) after I witnessed a wake behind my fly on one retrieve. There’s nothing like the hysterical leap of a striper as it flails at a topwater presentation. Fishing partner Bob Griswold had an equally splendid time.

Speaking of firsts, EnCon was out checking licenses at dusk. I’ve never had that happen to me in nearly 50 years of fishing. Here’s a reminder to make sure your license is current, and that you’re carrying it on your person.

My apologies for no outing photos. Here’s one from the archives.

    Steve Franks for the striper update and the reminder about the fishing license. I’m always excited when I see another posting from you because I know it’s going to be something I need to know about. Thanks.

      In the water. 🙂

      All kidding aside, Charly, one of the founding principles of currentseams is that I don’t discuss locations…especially not on the internet. I appreciate your understanding.
