 Steve Murphy (Captain) who took my dad and I out on the Merrimack
What a fun day yesterday was. There was a New England Saltwater Fly-Rodders trip on the Merrimack River. We met with Steve Murphy at Rings Island Marina at 1:00 and didn't get home until 11:00! I caught 4 fish and had about 6 that I almost had but they somehow got off the hook at the last minute...I still had the fly though so it's all good! At one point my dad, Steve, and I all had a fish fighting us on the line-it was pretty cool. My first striper was about 21 inches and my dad's was 23. Steve said now that we know what we are doing next time we are going to double our inches..........I told him I was just fine with the small ones. One of the stripers I caught was only about 12 inches and Steve made fun of me because I wanted to take a picture with it. It was a good day, the fish were out, and we finally caught something that swam and looked like a fish!
