Duck Broken

I first fished this swim in August 2014 with Steve Smith. Steve had a nice 4lb thicklip and I missed a few good takes until bumping a fish off on the strike. Next visit wasn't until September 2015 ... more missed bites and another fish bumped. Yesterday evening I managed to lose two decent mullet, one when the hook length parted on the strike, one that came off after about a minute. So you can imagine I was pleased to actually land a mullet here this morning, albeit not the biggest ever ...

It's a nice swim, sheltered from a west wind but needing a bit of sunshine to bring the fish into the shallow water. Anyway, on a roll, I relocated a few yards and caught another mullet, even smaller! A pretty little fish, and bigger to follow I'm sure.
