Season Starts On A Flat Note

Dragged myself from my man-flu bed for a few hours of piscatorial prescription. Had there been any mullet around, they would no doubt have been spooked by my continuous coughing, sneezing and whingeing. This little chap, however, showed no hesitation in nailing that well known flounder fly, the red-...

cheers colin for the useful info, as always mate. have you had any results using maggot flies. mick Never tried them Mick, as maggots don't really feature at the marks I fish. They are more common further west, such as where Mike Ladle fishes in Dorset. Pop a Ghost Buster and a Diawl bach on your l...

Hi Mick. Having a fly on the point which is heavier than the fly on a dropper helps to turn the cast over and get the flies to land neatly on the water. Typical mullet flies, such as the diawl bach, ghost buster or flexi-shrimp are light in construction because they need to travel with the current i...

Sting In The Tale

When the long, slashing tail first broke surface, I thought that I was dealing with a Stingray. Upon beaching the fish I was glad to realize that it was in fact a Thornback. Could this be the first thorny to be caught on fly in UK waters? Full account in this months FF&FT magazine. http://i567.photo...

Glad you enjoyed the article Mick. Joe is a lucky man living so close to what can only be described as world class fishing. The numbers of fish which come up river with the tide would make your eyes water! Next issue will actually feature Hayling Bass and the issue appearing in the shops around mid-...

First Thin Lip Of The Season

An early morning session started on a frustrating note. The mark I was fishing features a deep gulley with a very fast flow of water on a spring ebb. I have observed some very large bass and mullet here in the past and designed a weighted fly to combat the current and get down to the fish. The first...
