Golden Day

Post by MulletFly » Sat Sep 19, 2015 6:50 pm

Strong sun beating down on flat calm and Bacardi clear water appeared to make falling out of bed at 4.30am an error of judgement. The magnificent sun rise just after six almost made up for the painfully calm conditions but the fish proved to be incredibly spooky while feeding in very shallow water. Even the mid-air passage of the fly line was enough to send intended recipients scurrying for deep water. Cue the sudden arrival of a large bank of sea mist with attendant breeze and the tide (literally) had turned. Three feisty golden grey mullet fell to the charms of a spectra shrimp and diawl bach combination, weighing in at 1lb, 2lb and 2.5lb respectively. Every cloud has a silver lining.
