MK ambassador and striped bass aficionada Steve Stracqualursi had the pleasure of showing Runar Kabbe (widely experienced fly angler and sea bass expert in Norway) his preferred local striper haunts recently. Runar made the trip from Oslo, Norway to Portland, Maine earlier this month, arriving on the heels of Hurricane Carl. Fortunately for them, the weather and massive new moon tides proved to be ideal for fly fishing and a good measure of fish cooperation can be seen in their trip images. Steve focused their angling efforts on a band of Southern Maine coast consisting of rock, river, marsh and sand. They never had to venture farther than five or six miles from their Scarborough base for a world class experience. They were even able to use mountain bikes as a mode of travel to various coastal “put ins”. You can see photos from their sessions on Steve's Flickr Photostream. You can also read Runar's trip report (if you know Norwegian) on the Nordisk Fiskeutstyr blog and see some excellent images too.
Note that Steve did comment that he was still using the MK Granite Creek Convertible Pants under his waders but that the cooler September conditions were starting to demand something a bit heavier. You can see a Steve's review of the Granite Creek Convertible Pants on his fly fishing themed blog called Way Upstream.
