    Fear not the good dark

    Let its ebony cloak sit easy on the shoulders

    Rejoice with the denizens of the night

    Safe from daylights baleful stare



    Beneath the pale orbs glow

    Things of the night go about their does

    Moving to the rhythm of the beat

    Of a million twinkling stars

    One fish that will either make you insane or jump for joy, especially on the fly.

    Lovely Mullet mate, well done.

    Tell me more mate, where, when etc.

    What I have learnt is that mullet feed in the same places and same stages of the tide in darkness as they do in daylight. These fish were caught around the mouth of an estuary in Hampshire but the principal applies to feeding mullet in the UK and beyond. Be safe though and choose a mark which you know intimately.
    The technique could not be more simple......dead drift a team of flies amongst the feeding shoal and hang on to your rod.
