SWFFing around Kos

Hi...I Fly Fish in the sea and rivers in England. I am going to the Greek island of Kos on holiday in June. Can anyone give me an insight in to what Saltwater Fly Fishing action I can expect and also what species I can expect to catch. I have been once before but did not fish, the water looks really "fishy" but looks can deceive. Any help would be welcome and I will post a report when I return.



be the fiorst on this page sending report about Greece! take some shrimp immitation or black zulu style fies, I am sure you will hooke into some pelagics. i saw plenty of kind of small mullets. so mullets will be your target especialyn in a small harbours

pls remember to take some local drink in order to kill your human smell befor you go fishing :D

I know that GFF partner Kasper brought a rod and some flies to Italy and fished the Mediterranean. He brought classical saltwater streamers of the Popovich-kind and had success with small but strong fish.

Hi David, I have never been...

Hi David, I have never been to kos, but have been to many Greek Islands and you will almost always see plenty of Mullet and some bream off the harbour walls and if you can get a boat you will have a good chance of finding some mackeral.
Please let us know how you do, and post some pics.
where do you fish in Hampshire? I am originaly from Gosport and used to fish the entrance to Pompey harbour for Bass and Pollack and some huge Flounder!
