Back at Ladybower for the first of several long weekends. Tent up and fitted out and the first fish out from the boat dock. It took a white blob. The 10ft 4# Streamflex meant that the fight was a good one despite the relatively small size of the catch. Smile

These two plump mullet were caught today on some bread flies tied by Andy Hutson. Oddly enough I was in the middle of teaching another holidaymaker how to cast a fly line when they both obliged. The bloke concerned was made up when he managed to hook a small Palometa shortly afterwards. Very Happy

This is an Oblada (Saddled Sea Bream). Very Happy

A right porker of a mullet and my biggest from a float tube to date. This one weighed in at 2 kilos. I hooked it about twenty feet from the tube and after it had tested the backing I managed to net it near to the shore. Cool

Here's a couple more captures from Menorca this year, both on a GH GRHE (natural) with the Greys Missionary 9ft 5#.

Palometa: a particularly aggressive species but only when the fly is hauled back quick.



Leerfish: adult versions can grow to 1.5m in length. I caught a dozen of them in the half pound to a pound range and they still behaved like a 5lb trout taking masses of line. They'd also forced all the Palometas out of the area as I didn't catch any of them while the Leerfish were about.



All in all this year well over 140 fish caught, all between 6.30am and 9am, mostly on the fly although some on a bait rod (see below) with perhaps 70% of those to the tube and the usual bag up of Seranna/ Arana and Raphael from my mate's boat (8.30am to 12 noon) using small chunks of fish as bait on a four down rig over 50 metres. I'm beginning to get the hang of it. Very Happy

The annual Anglersvoice/Whistlekiller outing to Withern Mill trout fishery in Lincolnshire resulted in the usual high winds although this year the rain and hail stayed away until near the end of the session. πŸ˜‚ Due to conditions we were largely confined to a single bank approach for the four pools we fished.

Sport was brisk with Kev having already caught 3 rainbows before I arrived at 8.30am. I kicked orf with an SKB Gold Head Blue Flash Olive Damsel and after a couple of casts caught a feisty fish that gave the 4# Streamflex a good work out. Kev was catching consistently on an orange fritz fished deep and I followed suit with an orange Zonker and a quick switch to Iain’s Ladybower Buzzer for the remainder of the day.

The wind speed gradually increased reducing me to roll casting to avoid a fly in the head. Kev, being a left-hooker was able to proceed conventionally as we moved to the third pool which was markedly clearer than the others. This is where we both caught brown trout (pictures of mine below) before we moved back towards the car park as the hail threatened. All told I managed 12 fish with Kev Tommy-Toppering with 15. Not bad for 5 hours. πŸ˜€

Sarcasm-wise, quips were pretty impressive and we both had a good laugh at the expense of 'Zimfisherboy' for just about anything and 'drsixty7' for being Mick Rimmer. Worthy stuff! 😎😎😎😎😎
