Tight lines for 2011

Hi fellow anglers.
Wishing you all a happy new year and tight lines for 2011. April is back round again and temperatures are starting to rise at last. Hopefully if this keeps up it may trigger fish to leave the the warmer ocean depths off shore and over the next few weeks,we may start to get a few Bass and Mullet entering the Adur estuary and river system in search of alternative food. I’ll be keeping an eye on the river during my weekly walks for signs of any action on the water. Let’s hope we don’t get a repeat of last April’s snow and cold snap which spoiled the fishing somewhat. It certainly made the Bass fly fishing very difficult up stream. In spite of putting in more time and exploring new fishing places with different flies the returns were poor. If the Bass aren’t there you won’t catch ’em (bleeding obvious I hear you say). This season I’ll be upping the odds of a catch by targeting the Grey Mullet more frequently. From May on they are nearly always around and what’s even more exciting is that you can see them and if you conect with one you are in for a scrap. I’ll be trying out a new set of flies that I’ve tied specifically for these bottom feeders and let you know how I get on.
Ok bye for now Howie
