All of these are from several weeks ago for a recent trip to Pineville, NY. I didn't connect to any fresh fish then.

Then, a few days ago on The Appomattox River, 20 minutes from my place:

And the one, an old tie form a previous post:

Anyhow - Hope all are doing well and getting theirs. I'm sitting out this polar blast as long as I can...

Thanks guys and - yes this striper hit the olive/black married-wing. It was a total chance encounter. I went out to do some casting without expecting much action. Maybe a smallmouth, definitely not this anadromous striper. I stepped to the waters edge and made two false-casts to get the head out of the guides. On the first cast, one good mend and let the fly settle to begin swimming across the riffle at a head. The rod simply started pumping just like when a steelhead grabs. No aerial displays, but some very determined runs well into the backing. Then a little bit of hunkering down and dogging me some more. Quite the Game-fish.

I was asked for close-ups of the three:

I love all three of those flies, very very nice, you nailed it, make more!

Are you a southpaw by any chance?

Great stuff Vic !!
Like Adrian said , your flies have such class , they catch the attention of both fish and fishermen .
I caught my first striper this year on the Margaree .... actually three , I agree they put up quite the battle !!

Pure class. I don't care what type of fish you are fishing for, when you catch one on a classic, there is no better feeling. Well played.
