Ryan checks in with a short Striper
Ryan caught some short stripers and shad on an early morning incoming tide. The Striper ate a flat wing in dark colors. The shad ate a small white hair wing.
Ryan checked in with a great Musky. He used a Sage Motive 9ft 8 wt with a Rio floating line, a rio striped bass tapered leader and 20 lb tippet. He used a fly tied by Lee using materials from the shop and designed for the conditions where this fish was caught.
The big ones are out there. You need to do your homework and put in some time on the water. As always hit us up in the shop if you would like more info on how to catch a wonderful fish like this.
Striper and Shad NJ style
Ryan checked in with s few pictures of a successful morning at the jersey shore. He used a Sage Motive and a Lamson Guru. His fly of choice that day was a puglisi style fly tied by Lee. Keep up the great work Ryan!

You didn't become an expert caster just to say you did. And you didn't do it overnight, either. You practiced, fished hard, and got better because you wanted to catch more fish, more often. You paid your dues, and you met the fish on their own terms, which meant getting the fly out to places they felt the safest: out of the range of merely average casts. Fast action rods have always been a part of your success, and the new METHOD gives you more of what you love most. Like our fastest line speeds to punch through the wind and to carry the biggest, bulkiest, heaviest flies in your box out to where they can strut their stuff.
We asked ourselves what many of the most hardcore fly fishers who take on big anadromous fish and powerful saltwater species want in a fly reel. The answer, like our innovative solution, was simple: more control. You wanted to add extra fingertip or palm pressure to actively engage the fish, so we looked at existing reel designs and decided to open things up a bit. Literally. Featuring a unique modified full frame with exposed dual palming rim, the EVOKE lets you add fingertip or palm pressure from either side of the reel as you feel exactly how much it will take to turn that fish. But it’s not all up to you; the EVOKE utilizes the same proven fish-stopping carbon drag design as our 6000 series, with an intuitive drag knob with detents from 1 to 39 so you have twice the finesse when tuning-in desired drag resistance. Stainless steel dowel pins give the reel its staunch rigidity, and also help form a full frame line guard that eliminates any errant line mishaps. Plus, the pins help your fingers to index the exposed palming area for applying added pressure without taking your eyes of the fish. This one looks different, fights different, and is sure to be the difference maker during your next brawl.
Sage's all-new MOTIVE saltwater rods are ideal for seasoned saltwater fans looking to complement their rod arsenal, and fly fishers new to the salt who want to experience the many hard-fighting species without breaking the bank. Constructed of time-proven materials and embodying Sage’s immense saltwater experience, the MOTIVE features a powerful but smooth fast action that loads quickly to deliver heavy saltwater flies with the accuracy the sport demands. Light and responsive, you feel connected to your line for ultimate control over a full day of enjoyable casting. Yep, it’s safe to say the salt has attracted another convert.
