The end of the trout season (September 30th) is always tinged with sadness but as one door closes another opportunity is revealed in the form of fly fishing for grayling, often referred to as the lady of the stream. Climate change and recent Indian Summers coupled with a backdrop of the golden, russet tones of changing colours typical of Autumn/Fall can maximise the enjoyment of fly fishing for grayling during this special and romantic time of year.
Dry fly fishing for selective grayling in glassy reflective flats can result in uncaught virgin grayling weighing up to 2lbs. It can be absorbing and exhilarating watching large fish casually rise and take dry flies with that stunning red tinged dorsal fin glinting in the autumn sunshine. Or what about Czech Nymphing or using Tenkara to catch grayling?
If the idea of fly fishing for stunning pristine wild fish in beautiful surroundings sounds interesting then our October special offer might appeal to you. Fly fish on exclusive water on the middle Tees (the Snow Hall Fishery) and other Tees water, guided by former English Rivers Fly Fishing champion and Angling Trust Level 2 game Angling Coach Jonathan Barnes. Learn the whole range of techniques from the captivating dry fly to the mesmerizing European nymphing techniques. Tenkara is an ideal method for grayling and adds yet another perspective into presentation to capture this enigmatic game fish.
Learn about the natural flies that grayling feed on and the artificial flies that imitate them, how to identify male and female grayling and why catching them can be as easy as shelling peas or as difficult as trying to find the Higgs-boson particle.
