Devon was amazing this year, probably the best weather we have ever had down there: no rain whatsoever during the day and temperatures typically notched the early 20s. Warmth and sunshine usually entice Mackerel up the River Dart, but not so this year for some unfathomable reason. A more unlikely species of fish decided to play ball: Thin-lipped Mullet, a notoriously difficult species to catch. On this glorious day in Stoke Gabriel I caught 3 of these hard-fighting beasts from the weir opposite the café. I'll probably never catch one again...
