First Grayling Trip

Checked out the river and it had cleared a little since yesterday; So back home to dig a few worms from the compost and I was soon parking up at Long Bridge.

River is still very full and has a good flow on it, but just clear enough to catch a grayling. I tried above and in the weir at Loud’s Mill; down to Dead Man’s, but I didn’t get a touch and I didn’t see any salmon attempting Loud’s Mill weir – But I did have a kingfisher land on a branch only a rod length away, he bobbed his head a couple of times and was away…..

Weather forecast is for even more storms tomorrow!
