The speckled trout will be leaving us soon making way for the striped bass.
One thing that made yesterday unique was the company. I fished with a buddy from the local fly fishers club. He works in conservation and participates in the Virginia's fish tagging program. We made sure to measure, record, and tag several specks including one nice 16.5" fish at the end.
I practiced a bit more with the camera experimenting with release shots. Fortunately, the fish cooperated as there were plenty of specks in hand.
Music is by The Flaming Lips, "Fight Test."
Enjoy the music. Enjoy the fish. Happy Friday.
