Spent my last day on the water yesterday guiding and fishing for stripers for the spring run.  The saltwater run of stripers in Weldon, NC was great this year.  Benny had never really wanted to fish for stripers with a fly rod before, he really enjoys using buck tails and flukes.  I was able to talk him into at Weldon, I new he would have a lot of opportunity to hook into the striped bass on the fly.  Benny did great with his casting once he got use to throwing sinking lines and landed more stripers on the fly than he had ever caught on spinning tackle, I may have converted him.  We finished our day out with Benny landing a american shad!  It was fun stripers, see you next year.
