On the Run: An Angler's Journey Down the Striper Coastby David Dibenedetto
Synopses & Reviews
Each autumn, one of nature's most magnificent dramas plays out when striped bass undertake a journey, from the northeastern United States to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, in search of food and warmer seas. Writer and angler David DiBenedetto followed this great migration — the fall run — for three months in the autumn of 2001.
On the Run offers vivid portrayals of the zany and obsessive characters DiBenedetto met on his travels — including the country's most daring fisherman, an underwater videographer who chucked his corporate job in favor of filming striped bass, and the reclusive angler who claims that catching the world-record striper in 1982 sent his life into a tailspin. Along his route, DiBenedetto also delves into the natural history and biology of this great game fish, and depicts the colorful cultures of the seaside communities where the striped bass reigns supreme.
