The Flats Boat in…Maine?

"As I backcast, a lobster boat chugged across our path and distinctive Down East accents could be heard over the diesel engine. Releasing the fly line, I was reminded that I wasn’t seeking bonefish in the Bahamas, but casting to skinny-water striped bass on Maine’s Casco Bay.”

Note: Took the Mainers a bit of time to figure this one out? Capt. Jeff Northrop's been running a flats boat in the Norwalk Islands for the past 25 years.

We were fishing an 18-foot Hewes Redfisher out of Branford and Stratford as early as 1992.
