The local club does seem kind of odd, in that they always want to talk about the mountains, when they have paradise right here. I guess the grass is always greener somewhere else.
Stripers? I have no idea how many of them I caught on fly up in the Chesapeake Bay.(Used to guide up there also)Really missed not being up there this past fall/winter, but love being back home in PCola. 36-38 inch class stripers will take you on a war, bigger or smaller not so much but all fun.
I've got an idea of where and how to get them here, but haven't had a chance to check it yet.
Anytime you guys want to have a get together, just say the word. Maybe when it warms up a little, I can throw some tables out in the garage and we can have a TieFest, drink beer, grill burgers; whatever I'm game.
