Father and son are all smiles!

Quality not quantity was the name of the game today.  David and Dane had a great time enjoying a beautiful fall day on the water with warm daytime temperatures and light and variable winds.  They experienced the variety for which the Pamlico estuary is so well known by catching the famous Pamlico Fall Inshore Slam with speckled trout, puppy drum, and striped bass.  We were fortunate to end to day on a high note with David catching a 25 inch striper on a topwater plug right at dusk.  The fish weren’t schooled up enough to break out the fly rod but when it gets right, the fall topwater striper fishery can be outstanding for fly enthusiasts.

A keeper spec for Dane!
