Thread: Mullet

    Default Mullet


    A few years back I tried to catch a mullet on a fly with pretty poor results, well I say pretty poor - I didnt catch a thing (apart from a dab high in the water on a black pennall!)

    We tried a couple of waters in Wales and some more local waters (I'm in Norfolk) but just couldnt catch.

    Thinking of giving it another go this summer on some of our local estuaries where Ive seen lots of mullet cruising upto about 5lb but mostly smaller.

    Does anyone have any tips? Particularly fly selections, the only mullet I have every caught was on floating bread flake, it would be nice to try and catch on a fly!

    Any tips would be greatly received!

    Have a search under the authors name of Timmy Mullet, over the last couple of years he has submitted a lot of information.

    Mullet are sometimes very challenging to catch on anything let alone a fly, it's part of their charm.
    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”
