Fished with Capt. Art Sawyer & a good buddy - saw many fish and caught a few. It was awesome to see a great big striper following a fly only to turn and sink back into the rocks...

I've been fishing with my buddy Artie for 14 years now and we usually have a bet: "First fish, biggest fish, most fish - not on the same fish". I still owe him a lot of coffees and one more from yesterday. He picked up the "First" & "Biggest" categories - but it was on the same fish so I may file a grievance - 36" or 37" and thick though & through.

I won the "Most" with the last fish on the day just before the rain pushed us home.

We all worked hard and were happy at the end of the day. Capt. Art's hospitality & knowledge flowed freely all day. Capt. Art is no stranger to the board but if you're looking for a guide, I strongly reccommend him. :thumbsup:
