Virginia fishing guide Mark McKinney, erstwhile associate at the Orvis warehouse in Roanoke, sent in this great picture of a surprise catch on Sunday. Here’s his description:
Caught this about 42-inch striper just minutes from the Orvis warehouse. Not bad for July 3rd. Landed it on a 6-weight while fishing for a different kind of bass. Might not have any stars, but has plenty of stripes.
