Impressive Footage of Striped Bass “Engulfing” Flies on Cape Cod

On Thursday May 21st I was able to capture some pretty cool underwater footage of stripers on Cape Cod following and "engulfing" a 3 inch long brown and white fly.

The following clip was filmed during the last hour of the incoming tide. Conditions were bright and sunny with little wind, which made for really ideal underwater filming.

The spot where I filmed this clip is unique because a strong current creates a rip right along the shore. Places where a swift current abuts with the shoreline are often wonderful places to find striped bass on Cape Cod.

The fly in this video is a simple brown and white pattern which measures at about 3 inches in length. This particular fly can be purchased at the Goose Hummock Shop in Orleans. 

From bluefish and stripers to tautog and sea bass, the fishing on Cape Cod has been pretty good lately. There is no shortage of options, that is for sure!

  1. That video is so perfect, it almost doesn’t look real!

    1. You’re right! It almost doesn’t look real!

      For this video Jane I used slow motion to make it easier to see the bite. I was really surprised how well it worked out.

  2. “Ry on the Fly.” That’s your new handle.

    1. LOL, I have a ways to go before I deserve that nickname!

  3. Very Cool! Just watching the school follow the fly and then one brave “soul” takes the hook! I would also be interested in how you captured it on video. GoPro?

    1. Glad you liked it Scott! For this video I was using a Spydro camera which I had attached to my line. LMK if I can help answer anything else. 🎣
