Thanks! I'm always looking for something to me that is! Its kind of funny....been to AK 15 times, but never fly fished on the Chessy, and I only live a few hours away from it.

I have used Capt Chris Newsome. He was an excellent guide, and put me on a Sea trout on my first cast of the morning and a striper on my next one. He met me at my hotel and I followed him to the boat, so no getting lost. It was an all around good experience. As you can tell I highly recommend him.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Stripers
Chris is a super good guy & very knowledgeable too! He's also a very talented fly tier. I've talked with him several times, mostly about tying but have not fished him. I met him a few years ago at a show. If I was to want to fish the lower bay with a guide, he would likely be my first choice. :thumbsup:
