    So what you are saying is restrict grayling fishing to (using your suggested brown trout close season) to the period from mid May to the end of August. Fantastic! Those are the months that grayling are in their poorest condition (and indeed spawning).
    Do you perchance do most of your fishing on the forum?

    Nope, that's what you appear to be claiming I'm saying. That's not the same thing.

    There are plenty Scottish rivers with grayling in them, and the whole point of grayling fishing is it's something to do in winter during the brown trout close season. I usually find after the first few hard frosts of winter the brown trout go quiet, and on an average January day all you catch are grayling. Some rivers don't allow grayling fishing until 1st January.

    So what are you saying exactly?
    You certainly said no grayling fishing during the yet to be decided brown trout close season. The only logical time for a brown trout close season is over autumn, winter and early spring when brown trout are spawning and recovering. This is the very time grayling are at their prime.
    You either know sweet FA or are a clumsy troll (or a plank).
