    Default The most difficult fish to catch on fly in SA

    I think it would be a mullet but with no chuming.

    What do you guys say.

    Here is a vid where they catch mullet. they show a glimps of the fly they use.

    A mullet can definitely be challenging but for me its a Galjoen. Really want to tick that one off my list

    The fly in the video looks like a bread fly.

    Striped mullet in the surf are way easier than mullet in estuaries if you're in the garden route. Keurboom strand for example has massive shoals forming at high tide on all the rip's, swimming around vacumming up all the detritis floating on the surface - basically flick a salty "ddd" out and one of them mouths it sooner or later.
