Brief But Beautiful

A short trip out on the upper reaches of the River Wye last Saturday reminded me that the long, warmer days of spring are just around the corner.

Although it was a cool start the sun pretty much shone all day radiating its warmth...something that has been somewhat lacking for many months.

I opted to fish the duo, probably not the best method under the circumstances but I really just wanted to cast a fly line as opposed to fishing my preferred long leader method I mostly employ over the winter months.

With a very low, clear river it was tough but a joy to spend a couple of hours casting a line in some stunning scenery with the sun shinning on my face. Farewell winter Grayling...roll on the rising Trout!

  5. According to my observations, grayling will bite if you use anything that looks remotely alike something they would normally eat.
