Grayling Bug

Here is a cracking grayling bug and one that fishes well in coloured water, exactly the conditions yesterday during the grayling workshop. It is based on a traditional grayling dry fly the Sturdy’s Fancy and was one of Reg Righyni’s favourite flies. I switched this to a nymph added a tungsten bead to get it …

Grayling Workshop

Another successful workshop and I know a lot of anglers walked away with new skills on how to catch these wonderful fish. Conditions were fine, except for a slightly coloured river, but still plenty of grayling were caught by bait and by fly (I think fly even out did bait today!!) Thanks to John Aplin …

Grayling Workshop

A cold damp day didn’t stop a good turn out for the grayling workshop. John Aplin talked everyone through the art of nymph fishing, from using a sight indicator, to using two heavy nymphs Czech style.

Grayling Season’s Last Weekend

Good to see so many out enjoying the wonderful February weather and making the most of the last weekend’s grayling fishing. Trev found a very old brass Salter spring balance that weighs up to 8lbs at “Deadmans”, please contact John Aplin who is looking after it.

Magical Light

Whilst standing on the bridge trying to decide which colour of polaroid lenses would be best for the light conditions I was entertained by a treecreeper working its way up the trunk of a nearby tree. I decided to pay a bit more attention than usual to the water immediately above the bridge and after …

Winter Dry Fly

I hadn’t been out fishing for weeks, it was never quite right – too windy, too cold, too lazy!! Today I was going even if it was snowing!! I started fishing with two small nymphs and quickly lost them stuck on an underwater rock, this provided me with the pleasure of re-tackling with numb hands …
