It was a really dark dank day but there was a great turnout for the grayling social and luckily the river was in perfect conditions. After a quick chat and an agreed lunchtime rendezvous, we all headed off to fish for the lady of the stream.
The nymph fisherman found the grayling very uncooperative, but we managed to winkle a few out. It was the trotting fisherman that had the most sport and one Member landing a magical 3lb+ fish!
After a great lunch in the Sun Inn, some headed home, but others continued to enjoy the now bright and mild autumn day.
There were nine of us out, and aside from a rather heavy but brief deluge ( brought on by John A’s comment of “how lucky have we been with the weather…” ), we had a really pleasant morning. Lots of clearance on the side streams up above Blue Bridge, more below as well, and then a real sterling effort to clear a pool at the top of the water above Greys Bridge.
