In Australia no other sportfish is admired as widely and, at the same time, surrounded by such mystique as the Mulloway. These often incredibly large fish are formidable opponents and are fervently pursued by anglers from all walks of life. However, even with the amount of information available on how and where to find them, still only a small number manage to catch them consistently. Fewer still through the use of lures. This is because anglers are only getting half of the real story. Shadowing the Ghost of the Estuary fills in the gaps and tells the other half. The part about commitment and understanding how failure is an essential part of the learning process. Sol Bannura shares his numerous encounters with a predator that rarely gives its presence away. He describes the various techniques Mulloway use when stalking and subduing prey, allowing the reader to better appreciate their true physical capabilities. Solís advice on how to locate appropriate spots, when to fish them, and how to choose and operate the right equipment will also save prospective anglers considerable time and frustration. Shadowing the Ghost of the Estuary is much more than a guide for catching a species of fish. It is an amazing read. A collection of incredible stories portraying the life of a simply man, his devotion and commitment to recreational fishing, its teaching and, his burning passion to learn more about all things fishy. In particular, it is a brave and unique examination of the psychology of anglers, linking their temperament, upbringing and culture with higher learning opportunities.
