Enormous Grayling – that is what I was told. I have been putting off going “proper” grayling fishing for a while now. Not because I do not like Grayling – I just don’t like fishing for them. I can think of better things to do with my Saturdays than standing waist deep in freezing cold water slamming heavy bugs into the water to get them as deep as possible – then watching an indicator like a hawk for any subtle twitches or jiggles…
Like I say, I can think of better things to do – like tying flies, or even giving the Pike another go. However my two fishing buddies finally won me around with their talk of monster grayling that average at the 1.5lb mark.
It All Went Wrong
Alex the “Fishing Machine” blanked, Alan had one and lost one and I somehow managed to bring down the whole average grayling size by catching what I was told was probably the smallest grayling in the river.
Anyway, Alan’s grayling brought some excitement to the table – after losing one of around 2lb he then managed to land this one…

I swear it took me a day to recover – On Monday I am going to throw streamers for trout!
