August 2022 - Mullet on the Fly – Adur Estuary and Valley locations.

Cost- zero – though I am sure we can find some way to show our appreciation to our guide.

A session fly fishing for mullet guided by Peter Winder. Numbers for this will be limited to about six due to the small size of the fishing marks. Those of you who saw Peter’s speaker night presentation will be keen to have a go at a tricky, different quarry at a time of year when trout fishing is difficult. Actual dates & venue will be very tide/weather dependent so the notice will be short.
