More fish caught on blue flies
by Vic Velasco
I decided to go try for some striper. Not the huge cows you have to go dredging for, but some of the schoolies that run around the middle Potomac. I hit Gravelly Point just North of Reagan International at dawn and was casting clousers hoping for a good tug-o-war. No stripers today. I did see a few big catfish and carp, but they were not interested in the choice of fly I was presenting. Surprise surprise - I warded off the skunk by nailing a school of sunfish. I caught several with a white on chartreuse gurgler. But I did cut off the gurgler to get some blue fly action in. Here is another with a smaller blue killer bug.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
