Stripers, A Good Reason to Call in Sick

It is striper time!  Fly fishing for striped bass has been good lately and will continue to get better as the water warms and more stripers move up river.  The Staunton/Roanoke river is as clear as I have ever seen it in the Spring.  Usually I'm cancelling trips here and there this time of year [...]
