Salty Professor

For the life of me I can’t remember where I read it, but this past winter I read a passage from the 1890′s wherein a fellow was reporting the great striped bass fishing he had been having with some large Professor wet flies. Well naturally I filed that away with a smile, and this weekend set to tying some size 2 Professors on some Mustad 3407B Zinc-covered hooks that I snelled with Mason 16 lb. test hard-mono. The hooks are perfect for salt water wet flies in the traditional style. I’m looking forward to revisiting the delights my brother-of-the-angle enjoyed so many moons ago…
