    My wife has the fall blues

    The fall run of bluefish and striped bass is in full swing here.

    That's Nice! I'm not much of a fisherman, but one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, was when I was wading with a flyrod for stripers at Charlestown Breachway. The sun was sinking in the west and glittering off the water. Tiny silver baitfish were leaping up, out of the water, as the stripers chased the schools. They were like chrome butterflys, flittering around me.
    Of course, I'm one of the 90% of fishermen that catch 10% of the fish, so I went home empty-handed again. But definitely richer for that memory.

    I took these pictures out to the warehouse and showed them to my 8wt Able rod and reel. He's been depressed lately.

    "chrome butterflies" -poetic

    Ebbanflood's wife is cute. No catch and release for her, right Jim? A real keeper.

    Nice fish, I fished striped bass about 30 years ago in the Colorado River below the Mohave Dam. A fun fish on light gear...

    Lt, It was a very memorable evening. I probably caught 20 stripers and a few big blues. That 40" guy is the biggest fish that I have ever caught from the beach. I was using light tackle and he almost spooled me before I got him to turn around.

    Jim, You live in the striped bass capital. My friends make a trip up there every year. Your season is much earlier than ours so they go there first. One of these years I will make the trip.
