Running the Coast

2:44:18          
The Striped Bass is almost certainly the most revered and sought after saltwater species in North America, and this epic, near 3hr film delves deep into the subject of angling for these hard fighting fish. Following a group of 'striper' lifers, the film starts in the spawning grounds of Chesapeake Bay where expert anglers, the Tylers are looking for their first fish of the season. As sunset arrives, they finally find the fish they have been looking for and a big striper is boated to kick off the film in style. Further up the coast we meet Jo Shastray, a New York city firefighter and fishing boat captain who is equally obsessed by these fish. He explains how the currents and tides of New York harbour provide excellent opportunity to target stripers, and what an amazing backdrop we see as Jo does just that in front of the Manhattan skyline at night. As the water warms and fish migrate, they can be sighted up and down the coast and targeted out in open water and the Tylers show just how to find and catch these fish. We meet legends like Lefty Kreh and Bob Popovics who are both addicted to catching stripers and have played a hefty role in the development of fly angling for them. Greg Myserson also shows us how its done, fishing a worm hatch in Rhode Island, and he should know whathe's doing as in 2011 he became the IGFA World Record Holder for Striped Bass with a huge 81lb fish. We follow the migration up the coast culminating at Montauk where hoardes of anglers arrive each year to find stripers in what could truly be called the surf fishing capital of the world. We also join Pink Floyd's Roger Waters in Montauk as he fly fishes 'the blitz' where thousands of stripers hit bait on the surface and the action is relentless. This is a must watch film for saltwater anglers providing an incredible insight into the Striped Bass fishing scene, along with plenty of information about how to successfully target these amazing fish.
