There is nothing like a trip home to see the family, but when that trip entails new rods, new flies, and stripers, it can't be matched. This time of year, where we fish, most of the fish are no bigger than 18", so when my little sister reeled in a 24" fish , were very presently surprised. We preceded to catch about 8 fish over 20" with only 2 under. It was awesome, new flies, new rods and awesome fish, what a weekend. On top of that, mom made my favorite meal of all time, Cream of crab soup, cheese burgers, and french fries. Thanks Mom!
Oh yeah, and you have to go fish for some largemouth bass in Maryland, so we did that too.
