Well the winter was a bit of a right off for grayling fishing rain and high water for months on end, so today D asked if we could go out fishing for trout as it’s his Easter holidays, it was a beautiful day so why not, when we got to the water it was quite warm but no fish moving on the surface so I set D up with a duo method, nice bright klink with a small size 16 bead head nymph underneath it, to my surprise 3 cast later I hear “Dad I’ve got one” and got one he had a very big grayling had taken the bead head nymph, it took some persuading to come to the net, went straight out of the run it was hooked in and over a rapid into another slower piece of water where I finally managed to put the net underneath it, what a lump 47cm long and the biggest fish my little fella had ever hooked, shame it was out of season so not hanging around one quick pick and back into the water, it was a really disappointing to see all the predation marks over it’s body.
