    I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to record my thoughts on catching mullet on fly on film during the recent UK Saltwater Fly Fishing Festival. I hope it encourages anglers to take up the challenge of catching a mullet on fly.

    Quality information there as always Colin. Sad I couldn't join you but I was in North Devon on the lead up to the Festival on another mission. Managed to get out with a fly rod to harass the local Bass though so all was good (managed a few but all very small).

    Failed to retain the shooting trophy though so next year I may give the gun a rest and break out the fly rod.

    SCG :)

    You flatter me Colin, you are clearly the master of that domain, but at a festival there is always some luck at play. You never know. ;)

    I've just found that video on YouTube, there's so much information crammed into the clip. Thanks a lot, I'll try to put that all into good use this year as I have a estuary mark filled with thick lips close to home. Where can I get some diawl backs like I'm the video the ones I find online aren't the same , cheers :thumbsup:
