I slowly made my way downstream picking out the slower runs on the edges of the fast runs and enjoyed some success on Check nymphs. I caught 3 grayling of medium size and a couple of nice trout. On the whole the grayling season has been a success for me with the odd hiccup along the way. Next season I will concentrate on the best grayling venues, in my opinion, and forget visiting unknown venues and stick to the tried and tested places. The most obvious lessons learned through the winter are grayling can come and go like no other fish I have caught. Just like flicking on a light switch, you can catch severel grayling in succesive casts, only to vanish for the rest of the day. I believe grayling move around much more than trout so finding them is no mean feat and can take a bit of trekking from week to week . You must always be ready to make the most of the purple patch, but the difficulty is not knowing when its coming. You can throw everything at some grayling you spot, and they won't take until there ready, and the lunch bell rings. In my eyes the lady of the stream is second to none, she is truly magnicifent and worth all the effort wading around while freezing your gonads off.
