Oct 13th 2009 grayling fly fishing

Postby graylinghunter » Tue Oct 13, 2009 8:08 pm

Was going to head north today but major road works on the M6 changed our plans
Air temp 12 deg biometric 1015 Sunny water level 570 ish' running clear
Studied the water for a bit and decided to leave the salmon gear in the car
Fished Corwen waters.....heavy Bugs and Dry caught 15 decent fish the best 40cms one brown trout
Plus loads of grayling fry and brown trout parr (40 plus) as well but they don't count......Enjoyed the day

My fishing buddy Grey duster had a pretty good session he lost a 2lbs plus fish which lead him a merry dance in fast water
he also had quite a few to dry fly but struggled with the bugs.
For some reason the ladies just switched off around 230pm???
We picked up the lots of parr after that but the main weight of larger fish went down. Sadly no monsters today
I switched back to bugs and couldn't persuade them to take another look......

This one fell for a dry

If I want your opinion, I'll ask you to fill out the necessary forms.

A Good basic set up for grayling and trout (river not large still water)
£120 to get you going.
9 or 10 foot weight 5 fly rod......
Reel dynadisc will suffice
fly line
waders optional extra!

flys 30p-£1.00 each depending on complexity

Also waders...I prefer chest waders......
light mono 6lbs and 3lbs.

My own web site has loads of info on tackle advice for grayling fishing on the forum.....



This one was caught earlier this year....just over 3lbs

Now that is one hell of a Grayling :) :) :) :)
Sea fishermen are born honest. But they soon get over it.
