    Next months Fly Fishing & Fly Tying mag features the fly...full tying details and how best to fish it. Bass like it too. Lost a nice mullet and a very nice bass this evening. Both took the ghosty, guess the hook was slightly blunt!

    Hi Clouser.

    Ref Mullet in this country mate no experience at all so what I'm going to say may not help much.

    I was/am an obsessive Mullet fisherman in Australia Bob. Fortunately not many people target them over there as they're used as bait a lot more. :(

    Because the waters over there are a lot different I used to go to my favourite location (deep crystal clear). Took me ages to figure out the best method.

    I went down to 3/4 weight fast sinking line and a leader of no more than 4lb anywhere between 9 or 12 foot in length.

    Reference flies I eventually came up with what I called the 'Mess'. It was meant to look like the algae the Mullet were feeding on.

    I cast out and let the fly drop and gently go with the current and hopefully Mr Mullet would take. Worked maybe 60% of the time.

    Taking Mullet off the top is a different matter. I used a Bread Fly. The fish HAD to be in feeding mood though and even then I'd have to work hard.

    Plenty of fluffy bread would be thrown out and then casting into the area. Lot more difficult to catch as very very wary.

    Sorry if that doesn't help a lot mate. The Mullet are not under as much pressure out there and would be a LOT deeper mate.
