At last!

The weather finally stayed settled for long enough to finally start the grayling season 2 days ago. We have recently been frequently blessed with Indian Summer Octobers and I remember many a happy day at this time of year , in just a shirt catching rising grayling. I have several You Tube videos with titles like grayling in the tail which demonstrate this fact.

A specimen 3lb plus grayling from the Teviot

Despite so called global warming this October has been a lot wetter and colder than previous Octobers. So wet in fact that a Rivers competition was cancelled yesterday on the Dee because of high levels and health and safety concerns. The conditions for my client yesterday were not dry fly conditions either. Notwithstanding we did catch the single fish we saw rise, as if to prove the point that a rising fish should be a caught fish. The fly a size 16 match the hatch pale watery, which perfectly imitated the naturals that one fish decided to rise to. But the rest of the fish came to nymphs the usual RBS, P and O nymph combination working well as usual in high river conditions. We had a great day and finished with 14 fighting fit grayling.

To celebrate the start of the grayling season subscribers can take advantage of this great offer for a superb selection of proven grayling catching nymphs , presented in a fly box for only £40 plus £2.50 p &P.

Tungsten beaded nymphs- a must for Grayling
