TOP 5 TIPS

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

1 Gen­er­ally, mul­let pre­fer the riverbed at low tide and flooded bays over high wa­ter.

2 Don’t fish too light. Mul­let are fear­some fight­ers so my stan­dard feeder tackle is an Avon rod and 10lb main­line.

3 Check a tide ta­ble and know when high and low wa­ter oc­curs – this will have a huge im­pact on where you fish.

4 Trot­ting bread flake is another great tac­tic for mul­let. For this I use 6lb main­line and a large Loafer float.

5 Use a wide gape hook with bread flake, which should be the size of a 20p piece. Squeeze it gen­tly around the shank so the bread is still fluffy on the bend.
