Re: fishing with minnow flies for striped bass
Talk about cutting your fly fishing teeth by chasing down Striped Bass and Largemouth Bass. Most of us started by targeting panfish or trout. Kudos to you!
FYI. There is going to be a book called Fly Fishing the California Delta coming out next month. It was written by Captain Mike Costello. Most of the photographs were taken by John Sherman. I got an advanced copy, and it's great. You may want to get yourself a copy for some great inspiration.
Good luck with your fishing endeavors.
