Priest Striper 4/13/2007
« on: April 13, 2007, 07:49:00 PM »
Got out after work today for about 2 hours in all before the rain set in on us. It was a little slow but I was seeing arches on the graph so I kept casting the 500 grain and stripping it back. About an hour into it this Striper came outa nowhere and took the fly. He gave me a nice fight on a 10wt but I wish Id have been using my 7wt instead, hard to cast 500 on a 7 though The rest of the trip was pretty dull and grey except a Hybrid and a foul hooked Gar. I had planned on fishing till dark but Im done with cold, windy, rainy, days till next winter. Who am I kidding, Ill be back out just as soon as I can get away.

It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly. ~Thoreau
