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
Another blank on the Adur this morning. This was my third fly fishing outing in a week. At this time year we should be picking up schoolies at least. The season as still to kick off inside the estuary as far as the fly fishing concerned. In spite of temperatures rising and continued settled weather the bass are just not there in there numbers. The low tides of last week seemed hopeful but only produced a few schoolies after many hours fishing. Has anyone else had any luck?
