Dang. Caught my first striper on a fly yesterday below a local dam. BIG difference in the fight between a multi-pound striper and a 10 inch trout! I went back this morning with a few crease flies and had two last-second refuses (I think due to size of my flies being too small) but still a huge rush.

Now I'm looking at sinking lines for the 8-wt, watercraft, and I've started buying hooks 20 times the size of what I have always tied on.

I'm a sick man.
