False albacore fishing at Cape Lookout, NC 10/1/2013

Finally got out to take a look at this early run of albies I’ve been hearing about. My buddy Rip told me to meet him at 7:30 at his boat and I was all about it. First thing that happened was that I forgot my fly boxes and would therefore have to use his flies. No problem. Ran out to the Cape and there they were! And a few minutes later there we were:

Rip scored this nice one on a tiny baitfish pattern to match the little bay anchovies that were around.

So I switched flies and this happened:

Not the biggest ever but sure pretty:
