Mullet hunting!

This year is mullet year. I intend to catch one...

I have been out looking for mullet on a couple of occasions already this season, but only found them one of the days. They were cruising close to the shore as they sometimes do and gave a couple of hour's fantastic fishing - but no luck on the catching front. I still have to land my first mullet ever. I hooked four last year, but lost them all.

Although the fish were easily within casting range, none of my offerings seemed to be able to do much in tempting the fish, it was really exciting to see them cruise back and forth just a few meters from the beach.

I tried everything in the box, but it seemed that when the fish saw the fly, they turned away from it rather than towards it.

Yesterday I took a long walk -- with the rod ready -- along one of the places where I have seen most mullet. But to no avail. After several miles of walking I still hadn't seen a single fish, and I returned late in the evening with nothing but sore legs and a sweaty T-shirt.
