I couldn’t resist

I couldn’t resist a quick trip to the river on Sunday, and was surprised to find that a good few members had had the same idea. Admittedly conditions looked good, water not too clear, no wind, and temperature somewhere around 3C. It was one of those days when it was actually possible to change the …

Little egrets for company

I had a good day on DFC water yesterday with eight grayling up to 40cm, one tiny sprod grayling of less than 10cm, plus a couple of wild browns (possibly the same fish once in the morning and again later in the afternoon). I fished through the area we discussed with small tungsten bead nymphs, …

Merry Christmas

I had a bit of time on my hands so was able to get out after grayling on Christmas Eve and also Boxing Day. The river was in fine shape, just the right amount of colour in the water so the grayling could be caught unawares. There were plenty of fish throughout the lower water, …

Czech nymph

I did get to the Frome on Monday 31st October as planned, the water was slightly coloured, and conditions were good. Sure enough, the grayling were still well spread out in view of the relatively high temperatures. Plenty of grayling came to the nymph, mostly with delicate takes so I am sure there were many …

3lb Grayling

I had a nice 3 pound Grayling out today, full of fight, along with a couple of modest trout. All the best Will

Not a Club Member

Conditions were not perfect but I did manage to get down to the Frome for a couple of hours on 28th February for my last cast of the season. The water was fairly high and a bit coloured, but by no means impossible. The wind was chilly though, and temperature around 6C. When I reached …

Budgerigar-sized

I waited till the weather warmed up a bit and went out fishing on Monday for my first trip of 2011. I had decided it was time to catch my first Frome pike (I must admit I have seen very few there, never mind caught one). I cast to the likely spots with my usual …

20″ – Fantastic

An opportunity presented itsself to me which meant I could snatch a quick trip down south to try for a grayling or two. John Grindle kindly put me up for the night and I made start at around 10am.  River looked fine and with a good flow but did not manage any fish until further …

The melt had begun

Good to see you at Christmas, as you saw for yourself, I did manage to get out after grayling, see report below: Unlike Dorset’s roads, the river was clear and looking ideal on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but turkey had to take priority over grayling.  By 27th, the melt had begun, leaving a short window …

Suspiciously fat stomachs

The AGM for me is not just the Annual General Meeting, but time for Another Grayling Mission (weather permitting). By AGM day the snow had gone, the water had cleared and the sun was shining, but it was still extremely cold. Things were very lean to start with, the only signs of life being snipe …
