for fluke. I was working my way down the jetty towards the beach and slowly retrieving the fly and WHAM! The fish was strong and quickly I was into my backing. I kept the rod up and worked my way down where I was able to beach the fish. It was about 22 inches. I took a few pictures and then released it back into the surf. I am glad I finally caught a striper this spring, after going O for a hundred days in the fall. It's not my first striper on the fly rod in 2001 I took a charter out of Newport, RI and land my first schoolie. But this was my first since stalking the beaches and jetties since the fall of 2009. Hopefully I will just let it go, and not let it get in my blood.
