Grayling Fishing

Our rivers   

grayling

As the trout season draws to a close the grayling come into their own. As the leaves fall from the trees and autumn turns to winter, amidst the spawning trout grayling are fascinating creatures with their different quirks and habits.

For decades grayling were considered something of a pest and river keepers were instructed to remove them. However, we happily live in more enlightened times where the grayling is rightly regarded as the fourth game fish, for many an equal to the salmon, brown trout and sea trout.

Despite the winter rains the chalkstreams will generally run clear, perfect for sight fishing with Red Tags, the Grayling Witch, Shrimp patterns and Killer Bugs for the "lady of the river". Our grayling beats open from October to mid-March.
