• Thumbs Up For Mullet Fishing Masterclass

    We were delighted when over 25 sea, coarse and game members attended the mullet masterclass on the Ouse at Newhaven last Sunday. The event proved so popular that we had to close registration only 36 hours after launching it, for fear of being overwhelmed!

    A blisteringly hot day and blazing sunshine made for fine sunbathing weather but not so fine mullet fishing conditions. Even so, a brace of fish were caught up to 3lbs with one lucky member, Peter Foster, catching his first ever grey mullet. National Mullet Club Chairman, Steve Smith (pictured), showed how it’s done with a lovely fish on his first cast of the day.

    Huge thanks goes to Steve, James Elton and the other members of the National Mullet Club who were on hand to guide Angling Trust members and show them tips and techniques. Everyone came away from this friendly and relaxed event having had fun and learnt something new about how to catch the elusive grey mullet.

    Off the back of its success plans are being made to make this a regular event in the Sussex Region calendar with similar “masterclass” sessions for other species in the pipeline later in 2013 – keep your eyes out for more details.
