First bass of 2012

Hoorah, a bass at last. Snuck off work for an hour at lunch time and landed this 1lb fish under the Norfolk Bridge. Pluss had numerous takes but didn’t connect. The river is nunning nice and clear now so let’s hope the weather and fishing stays settled.

Mullet on the fly

And yet another tonight. This one took a “polar fly” on the third cast of the evening. The fish took the fly, I struck and he was on. It then shot out of the river, up in the air and landed on the bank. I walked over to pick it up and it flipped its way back in the water and shot off. Luckily I was still holding the rod and managed to play it back to the net after about 5 mins and here is the very fish.  You just never know what is going to happen when you hook a Grey Mullet but a scrap is almost certainly on the cards.

A nice three pounder
