Episode 25 – Striped Bass Memories with Danny Ripley

In this episode of the podcast, Danny Ripley and I reminisce about Striped Bass fishing on The Annapolis River (Nova Scotia) back in the 80’s and early 90’s.  Though Danny and I really didn’t get to know much of each other until later in life, we shared having been fortunate enough to experience great Striped Bass fishing on The Annapolis River as youth, with our fathers Jack Ripley and Tom Doggett.  We both look back very fondly on those times, fishing with our fathers and meeting many other great anglers like the infamous Rex Taylor, Gary Gorham, and many others.  We also take some time to discuss some more recent Striped Bass issues. Danny remains an avid angler, guide, and fly tier.  For more information about Danny, click here to visit his website. While Danny and I are now both very conservation minded anglers, here are some photos from years ago, in a time when the majority of fish caught within the legal limit were retained: Jack Ripley – Danny’s best mentor.
