Herring Starting To Run

One of my favoite fishing sites is:

Maine Fly Fish
Within the parent site is a forum that has 10 topics, one of which pertains to salt water.
I was reading this topic yesterday and learned that the herring are starting to run in Massachusetts which is a good sign for things to come here in Maine because where little fish go, big fish follow.
One of my fishing goals this season is to hookup a striper on my fly gear. Anyone out there reading this and has personal experience with this..please..drop me an email or post with some tips on where, when and what flies to use..It would be greatly appreciated.
