After taking a lunch break things began to warm up a little, well the fishing did anyway as i began finding plenty of those big beautiful Wye grayling. The nymph that proved effective was my own pattern which I haven't named yet but after great success today I'll think on the name. I tried bringing my bottom 2 flies together today to speed up the sink a little and bingo! I was away and couldn't go wrong, having the time of my life was an understatement.
It has to be said that now I'm finding my feet on the Wye the grayling fishing no longer plays second fiddle to the Dove, its every bit as good in my opinion, just look below if you need proof. To my amazement the Wye was my river alone today, considering this form that's hard to believe, I never passed a soul all day never mind another rod - proper fishing. I should mention locating them wasn't easy by any stretch so be sure to keep moving fast and furious.
Needless to say the next 3 months are gonna seem like years but eventually I'll be back on the Wye for those big wild rainbows and browns.
