Photos of the Day: Block Island Beast of a Striped Bass


Written by: Phil Monahan

A dreary day produces little sight-fishing but plenty of big stripers on the prowl.

New York angler Peter Laurelli’s annual “Surf and Inshore Fly Fishing” videos have been a huge hit on Orvis News. (Click here to see the videos for 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.) Last week, he sent us these great images, along with a note:

We just got back from 10 days on Block Island. I bought an 8-foot ladder to hopefully sight-fish in the Great Salt Pond, but instead we got 8 days of wind, rain, and fog. Turns out those conditions were perfect for sitting above the water. Thought you might enjoy a few pics of one nice fish caught on the H2 8-weight from the perch.
