Ep 55: Trout Fishing for Stripers, with Steve Culton
Steve Culton is a writer, guide, and fly fishing instructor with a passion for stripers. He has taken a somewhat out-of-the box approach to catching them, employing techniques typically reserved for trout. In this episode, he walks me through his approach of “trout fishing for stripers,” including reading the situation before taking the first cast, using currents to drift small flies, making use of floating lines, and working the shoreline for cruising fish.
