Fly fishing on the Chesapeake Bay

was great yesterday. Striped bass up to 24 inches were breaking on the surface for 4 hours. There was also bluefish mixed with the stripers. Blues were mostly small but a few nice ones were around. Most of the rockfish wre caught on poppers, with a lot caught on trailers behind the popper. We also caught fish with sinking lines with clousers. A lot of the schools of breakers did not have any birds on them, and these usually held the bigger fish.
