So far this season I've had great luck on the fly rod. Fly fishing Cape Cod this spring for striped bass has been a ton of fun!
All my life I used spinning gear, but so far this year most of the stripers I've caught have been hooked on a 9 weight fly rod.
For me, catching stripers on the fly requires much more concentration, technique and skill, than spinning tackle.

The following video was filmed last week, about 48 hours before the start of the intensely popular Cheeky Fly Fishing Tournament.
In this video I'll share with you a very simple way to start catching striped bass on Cape Cod using fly gear. I'll also show you the gear and a simple fly that works well throughout the Cape region.
I feel the equipment and fly I'm using in this video are great choices for anyone interested in getting into fly fishing Cape Cod for striped bass.

I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
