|Nigel Playing a nice Grayling|
The Grayling fishing was slowly building up into the third week of November, and although we haven't encountered exceptional amounts of fish, we have caught some good quality fish, mainly around the 2lb mark, but also one or two bigger than that, as we did previously.
In between a couple of casting sessions with people, I had Nigel McCallister out on the river for three days tuition and fishing, experiencing some unbelievably warm weather for the time of year. Nigel was over from Spain on holiday, but his roots are here in the UK and he loves his Grayling fishing, it was not in vain either as he had a few nice fish during his time here, until that is, the weather took a turn for the worst again. "We thought it was too good to be true". Never mind he did get some good fishing in before the river rose again.
|A good Result|
Yes, Unfortunately, from late in the day on Tuesday 22nd, the river began to rise and it has been consistently high ever since, never settling, scuppering the chances of any decent Grayling fishing on the fly, and to add to that, the strong winds we have been plagued with over the past few days are certainly not helping matters in any way whatsoever, making conditions ever more difficult. Oh well, we will just have to hold back a little longer. "Let's see what December brings".
