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 that I never even registered. The best fish measured 16″ and bright beadheads were ignored in favour of the trusty green Czech nymph (small pheasant tail also did well).

It was an excellent day but it didn’t seem right fishing for grayling in such warm weather (no need for flask or buns) so I’m looking forward to a real ‘winter’ trip soon. Or perhaps I should be careful what I wish for…

All the best,
Doug
