Any angler who fishes for Grayling all have one thing in common, they’re not shy to lather their flies in the brightest, most offensive colours known to man! It’s all becuase Grayling simply love a bit (or a lot) of colour. Shrimps, pheasant tails and even dry flies nowadays are covered in pinks and oranges, be it a tail, a body or a thorax. When I was … Continue reading A Grayling Favourite…
The forecast for the past weekend was supposed to be atrocious, and frankly, it was. But, Sunday morning saw a small window of opportunity, the wind had died down and the rain had eased just enough for a comfortable few hours on the river. Alex and I made our way over the river for what was our last opportunity to get on the grayling before … Continue reading When rain stops play…
Every winter I always try and get down to the river Test for a few days grayling fishing, the clarity of the water on both the Test and it’s carriers are something that has to be seen to be believed – Crystal clear waters, even with the most horrendous conditions – which hinders much of our fishing through the winter to say the least!

An extremely windy day with a river which seemed … Continue reading A few hours Grayling Fishing

Once you get into a run where they … Continue reading Some Serious Grayling
For some reason, this year im enjoying the Grayling fishing more than ever. Being able to head out at any time, whether it’s just a few miles downstream on to the Taff or a 300+ mile trip to the Test or Anton, the Grayling always seems to get my blood pumping. This time of year I put a lot of effort into my Grayling box … Continue reading Grayling Time!
With plenty of snow still infesting, it seems, the ground, Sunday was probably the last day we’d get in the river until after the big thaw and the high, cold, salty waters retreat back to normal. Terry from the Taff Diaries blog, Lewy and I headed to the Taff for a couple of hours of grayling therapy. It was tough starting off with just a … Continue reading Et Viola! The Pink Braid Bugs Work!
