Christchurch mul­let

Angling Times (UK) - - TIP & TACTICS -

TO­DAY I said ‘hello’ to two new fish­ing com­pan­ions – Wayne Lit­tle and Andy Parker – and we headed to the es­tu­ary for a spot of mul­let fish­ing.

These fickle crea­tures can drive you mad. Even when one does de­cide to suck in your bread flake you can never be sure that you will land it. A hook-pull on my first fish wasn’t a to­tal shock and then, when I did net one, it jumped out of my hands be­fore I could pho­to­graph it, much to the amuse­ment of my friends.

In truth, sport was slow but in the last real heat of the year it was a lovely place to be.

When we fi­nally left the marsh I vowed to re­turn be­fore the mul­let left to over­win­ter in the open sea.
