I had a few sizable grayling like in the pic above, mixed in with a few just a pleasing smaller ones like the fish shown below. I used a check nymph method with 2 of my extremely heavy Leatherback Nymphs which have proved deadly while bugging this winter. To be honest I've found 2 check nymphs more effective than 3 around many Derbyshire rivers, well the shallow ones at least, I hate them bloody snags when fishing 3 and the depth is much harder to control.
I gave up just after lunch after a memorable mornings fishing and I dare say I probably would have lasted longer than Robson Green as this was real extreme fishing. I'm of the opinion that the quality of lady bashing this season seems to be supreme, if not as regular as usual it has produced many beauties like the one below, my favorite of the day.
