Fished the early morning flood with Tom Lambert​. Any concerns that the mullet may have moved off-shore following the recent drop in air and water temperature were soon put to bed as a shoal greeted us at the first hot spot. Numbers were definitely down though and the fish not quite so active. Perseverance paid off with a hard fighting Golden Grey of 2lb which snatched a diawl bach tied on a Kamasan B100. The fish took the fly in around 6 inches of water and the scrap which followed was explosive to say the least. We eventually found a developing shoal which were beginning to feed with intent and I soon noticed the spectra shrimp on the point was being followed by some large fish. A slightly crazy spell followed with the fly being struck three times in four casts. The third fish stuck and proceeded to empty the reel of backing to the point that I feared I might be 'emptied'! Throughout the contest the fish was closely accompanied by two similarly sized mullet, which followed its every move. With relief I drew the fish towards the net only for it to turn to run once more. I clamped down on the fly line, determined (and very tired) not to give any line. Of course the inevitable happened and I was left to rue the loss of a decent fish. Most upsetting of all though is the fact that this may well have been a GG, not a thick lip and the fish appeared to be well in excess of 4lb.
