  • Striped Bass Fly Fishing

    The Atlantic is host to large populations of striped bass, from New Brunswick to the Gulf Coast. Because these fish often feed on smaller baitfish, shrimp, and crabs-and live in shallow water- they are an ideal fly-rod target. Some fine striped bass fishing can even be found in the harbors of New York and Boston, so these fish are available to a great number of people in the Northeast and Middle Atlantic States. Tom is a lifelong striper angler and shares the tips he has learned over the years.
