A good friend of mine has visited Australia last summer and he told me that catching mulloway is a very exciting experience, its like catching grayling in Scandinavia.
Today I saw this and I now understand what he means.

This guy from South Australia, fishing in Onkaparinga River from the yak, gets lots of mulloways. Each fish looks very, very active and curious. I love this kind of catching. Beautiful day, beautiful fish, perfect filming. Thanks to Harry Steele for sharing this action with us.
