Episode 4: Essex, MA, Striped Bass

Join host Tom Richardson as he travels to the coastal town of Essex, MA, in search of striped bass. It’s early-spring, and the first waves of migratory stripers are entering the Essex River, taking up station along its sheltered marsh banks and tidal creeks. Armed with fly gear and fishing from a pair of Old Town pedal-drive kayaks, Richardson and friend Guyton Thorne show why Essex is an under-appreciated light-tackle paradise that deserves more attention from anglers.
