False Albacore Heaven!

Fished with Michael from Old Lyme CT yesterday.  Micheal fishes exclusively with the fly rod.  We had Albies everywhere yesterday but found them fussy in what they ate.  Fish were not boat shy at all.  We had dozens of pods throughout the day blow up right at the boat.  We tried every fly known and in the end the ‘Albie Whore’ was the clear favorite of the fish.  We only fished a half day and when it was over we hooked 7 and boated 5.  Fish #1 was Micheal’s first False Albacore so it was a thrill to be along for the ride to see it happen. I’ll be back at it this morning and expect the fish to still be just about everywhere.  Yesterday we didn’t need to run and found all we wanted locally.
