Back during one of the Pharonic Dynasties--I forget which one--we lived in Virginia for a few years. One of the delights of that term was the availablity of shad roe which we sometimes used to enjoy at a classic, textbook Nash Buckingham type of Hunting and Fishing Club.
I've not been back to the region during the Season in many years and am anxious to find recommendations near DC in order to pass them along to an avid fisherman friend living in Alexandria. He is Russian and has never had this treat.
Your considerations are appreciated.
