Waiting for shool fish to arrive can involve a lot of patience.  Brian Davies (left) would go surfing when the waves were suitable.  Brian said the school fish usually arrived 2-3 days after the first 'cold snap' weather warning.

Brian Davies with typical mulloway (jewfish), which will feed on beach worms in shallow surf conditions and whole mullet when those fish are schooling.
