Striper

Striper

Striped bass, legendary marine predators.

An iconic gamefish on both coasts, stripers are one of the most fun species to pursue with a fly. Aggressive but often mysterious, stripers continually challenge anglers, even after years of practice. As migratory fish, stripers are highly adaptable and opportunistic, and can grow to be genuinely huge. Whether on the California Delta or the flats of Cape Cod, striper fishing provides a respite from everyday life and makes a journey of your day out.

We’ve assembled here the best and most essential equipment necessary to target striped bass on a fly, so you can make the most of every chance you get to spend time on the water.
