Juro, you are correct...

Sandy Neck, as I recall. It was one of those in-between tides times on the elbow, and just needed to check for activity on that side. The three other guys in the photo, are Matt, Stevo, and Silas. Three hardcore fishermen from the UK. Oops, Matt has just relocated to Sydney, Australia.

Stevo, will see you in June with the contingent? Thanks for the picture. As Penguin said, only 3.5 months until our strriped friends return.

Incidentally, I recall that you had some absolutely beautiful photos around the cape that you took last year. Might be good to share one periodically to get us our of the winter doldrums.

The best pictures are from that fantastic day we all had on Morris Island. It's one I'll never forget! Do you remeber the huge cow that chased Matts hooked Striper?


I particularly like this one. He was sound asleep when I took the photo and doesn't know... Till now!

Dedicated striper fisherman...

not. I think we wore him out on the death march down to the end of Morris.

I have thought about that gigantic striper that followed Matt's schoolie. Maybe, just maybe, we need to give thought to a schoolie striper fly. What we do know, is the big boys are there!

Not long...

You may laugh, but...

I think Jim will have the last laugh, when he visits Oz later this year. Check out what he'll be landing on 9 & 10# gear!

Matt with an average sized Longtail Tuna.

Stevo, you went and did it! Only 2.5 months, but who's counting? The story goes that Matt went there for a two week fishing trip. It was so good, he quit his job and stayed six weeks. Matt produced a video called the Rimfly Challenge. It is a contest to see who can land a longtail tuna using a click-drag reel. Silas won the contest, only after burning his hand while palming the spool.

I hooked a seal last summer, and suspect the longtails are similar. Thanks for the photo.

I have a copy of the 'Rimfly Challenge' - that Matt made for me. Shame we can't get someone to host it, as it has one of the best fly fishing footages I've ever seen!
