Thanks, wish I could have found the Stripeback Darter, Casey got the only one we found. We spent 4 hours at one creek trying to find them again with no luck.

Love to find a few torrents to keep the one I have company. If you ever get a chance to collect the James river near Richmond Via, it is absolutely loaded with stripebacks. Nice catch on your favorite fallfish!!!!

Thanks! Do you have a grid for that location for Stripebacks?
