i had purchased a mepps no 1 which was not seeing much use.every time i used it i did not have a single bite so it sat in the tackle box.
i decided to cast it out of sheer boredom as i was not getting bites on anything else. on the second cast i felt a pull,quickly relinquished. i made another cast and got a bite. after a bit of a tussle the fish ran off. i had my hopes up and kept casting it and tried to vary the retrieve speed.
after a few more cast i had a hit. fought the blighter for around 2-3 mins and landed this 2 pound mulley. this is the first fish i landed on a spinner. the fight on roughly a quarter drag was good and i shall shortly be cured of my habit of winching fish out of cover.

Nice mulley.

Mepps spinners are the best lures for catfish, get some No. 3s, 4s and 5s and youll hook lunker mulleys.
