Blue, as in blue-backed herring, the king-size bait fish that sometimes run along the coast of Long Island, bringing in their wake ravenous and enormous striped bass.” Peter Kaminsky writes about the fast and furious fly fishing surrounding the big schools of stripers that appear off the east end of Long Island every early December.
