A fine morning on the Chesapeake

Yesterday I met my friend Greg at his marina in Deale, Maryland, and we fished some of his nearby spots on his 17 foot Boston Whaler.

Naturally, he caught more fish, but I was happy with the steady action I was getting using a fly rod.  We were catching undersized rock fish but then got in to some sizable white perch which excited Greg because they're his favorite eating fish.  Even so, he generously gave me all the fish after he did all the fileting:

After finishing, we had sandwiches and beer at the local spot between his home and the marina.  Greg is good company and a fine fisherman who understands the benefits of learning the workings of a local environment.
