Bad pants off Montauk

December 3, 2008 by John - No Comments

My buddy Pete sent me these pics of himself and a couple of friends tossing flies at stripers and blues off of Montauk. The images hearken back to trips past in which Pete and I braved the nasty Atlantic off of Chatham, Cape Cod. The rolling swells, the bass and blues thrashing on top, the picturesque dunes and lighthouses – they’re all still imprinted in the mind’s eye. Pete was fishing with Captain Paul “Koop” Koopmann (, whom I’m told is a good dude and capable guide. In fact, Paul says his name ends with two “n’s” because he’s “super nice.” Look him up if you plan on sampling the Long Island Sound fishery in CT, NY and RI. Anyhoo, very solid work by this crew. Oh, and Pete, the Fire Chief called. He wants his orange pants back.
