Josenhans FF ~ CBBT on the Fly

19 01 2012

On Monday, January 16 I had the good fortune to fish the CBBT with Brendan Kasper and Brian Hepler. Brendan and Brian, both being very accomplished fly fishers, elected to leave the spinning sticks back in the truck. They were rewarded for their efforts with maybe twenty or so fat, hard-fighting stripers that averaged 23 to 26 inches. The belly of every single rockfish was over-stuffed with bunker. After a morning that began with temperatures in the mid-20’s, a light southerly breeze provided us with a most enjoyable day on the lower bay. Toward the end of our trip, a small pod of right whales gave us a  brief top-water show as they slowly plodded their way upstream with the incoming tide.
