I have put together a brand new presentation for 2021. I am looking forward to debuting this presentation for the first time next Thursday. This will mark my first in-person presentation in almost two years and I am very excited about that!
Stripers are one of the most popular game fish to catch on the planet. I have spent a good portion of my adult life pursuing this great fly fishing quarry. During my "Seven Stripes, the who, what, where, when, why and how of to catch Striper on the fly" presentation we will discuss all aspects of catching Stripers on the fly, from what or who the fish are, to how and where to catch them. If you are a striper junkie like me, then you will not want to miss this presentation!
The first chance to catch this presentation will be at the October Delaware Valley Fly Fishers meeting. The DVFF meeting will be Thursday, October 14th, at 7:00 PM, at the Churchville Nature Center, located at 501 Churchville Lane, Churchville, PA. Click HERE for directions. I will start the presentation shortly after the end of the club business. There will be something for every type of fly fisher in this presentation, from the first-year rookie to the seasoned jetty rat. This event is open to the public, with a nominal entry fee for non-club members. This promises to be a great evening; we hope to see you next Thursday night.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us, if not we look forward to seeing some of our Norvise tyers attending this great event.
Till next time...

Stripers Are in!
Our buddy and Norvise Team Member Ethan Rakes and his friend Christian have been tearing up Stripers at night under the lights the past few nights. Here is the recap in his words.
Another night under the lights tonight.I caught 27 Striped Bass and 8 Hickory Shad! That’s a total of 35 Fish, 7 more than the previous night. Overall I caught 63 Fish a combination of 11 Shad and 52 Striped Bass over two nights, around a total of 4 hours. Between Christian and I for the two combined days we caught 98 Fish, 24 Shad and 74 Striped Bass. Our Biggest Striped Bass was 19 inches, and Christian ended up with a huge Shad for his second to last fish of the night.
I asked Ethan what flies were working for him, his response...Clousers and Deceivers, Tied on my Norvise of course.
