Gadzooks! Ten years since I wrote this? How amusing to sift through the archives and find stuff that came out of your brain when nobody knew your name. “Mouth of the Housatonic River” is a quick-read primer on the spring striper bite. There are a few almost-funny jokes, and much of the information is still pertinent. The article first appeared in the July/August 2009 issue of Eastern Fly Fishing. You can read it by clicking on the link below:
What a witty introduction! When I finally got to the punchline I found myself chuckling out loud. Always a joy to read your writing, Steve.
Very kind, Sam. Glad you liked it.
THanks for the info. My daughter and grandson live in Fairfield and I was looking for where we could try a little bit of salt water fishing.
You’re welcome, Greg.
Mr. Culton , I enjoy your articles immensely . Eastern FF was one of my intro’s into FF publications , being relitivly new to FF , I tried to absorb as much info as I could . To this day your article entitled “ Salmon fishing for Stripers “ echos in my mind each time I fish quite a few of my favorite spots , the technique being ideal for said areas .The mouth of the Housy was my first “FF destination “, as I usually fish close to home in NJ . At the time , it seemed as exotic as it could be . Lol it hasn’t lost any of the attraction. Again , I enjoy your writings & will try to thank you in person when the opportunity arises . Bill J
Hi Bill, thanks so much for reading and for your kind words. You made my day! And please — call me Steve. 🙂
