Cowen's Mullet
 

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

One of the great favorites of southern fish (and fishermen by the way) is the mullet. Huge schools provide plenty of forage for barracuda, kings, amberjack and any species that haunt southern and temperate waters. Usually hanging close to shore, the mullet is a prime bait for southern anglers and this mullet fly is an excellent imitation for flyrodders. Color, Natural.
