|getting ready to wade out|
I was buzzing with my new method and every cast produced a bump or a mullet....standing in warm water with the sun on your face hooking these wild speed demons was just pure living the dream... my mrs was sunbathing 100 yards from me so was she was happy!!
I looked into the gin clear water and could see bigger black tails in there shoals swimming past at a unbelievable speed..acting very different than the smaller mullet...i knew these older fish were wise and hooking one would be very hard...they were circling and taking the same path every time they came past me hitting into any free bread offerings that the smaller fish had not taken...they were very shy and would not hit the surface in the glaring sun but looked well on the feed....
i walked further back to give them some distance and threw a 25 yard line into the larger fish feeding lane, before i could set my D in the fly line my lamson sped off in nothing it has ever experienced taking line at a unbelievable rate!! i had hooked a proper mullet......i just hoped for the hook hold in this 20 yard run and stood there with a looped over rod just watching my reel fly!!
i managed to turn the fish at 25 yards and it was circling around me at a pace no trout can ever reach, the mullet were taking my bread offerings to my left and the fish just ploughed through them with mullet fizzing on the surface in despair...
Every time the mullet got closer to me it found more strength to sprint off again and each time it was getting tired....

|its ok JT i washed the lamson|
I told my mrs we were having a free meal again tonight and golden mullet was on the menu, i had dispatched 4 perfect sized fish and kept them in a water tight tin to keep them fresh...
I had caught over 15 mullet in a few hours session and on my light fly tackle it was one of my biggest highlights in fishing ever.....

|one hour later and in the pan|
|Golden mullet 'living the dream'|
Will be back soon
