Aaaah, you see, I thought about 4lb
I just had a look at the chart, good piece of information to have an idea.I was simply going by 'Brown Trout Weight Length Conversion' chart.
Unless you actually weigh a fish it is really all a bit of guesswork.
Grayling are the hardest fish to judge, when going by length.
A cracking fish irrespective!
You were lucky, had that been me he would probably have been just a bit upset...I know this is not the right thread, but as the river is out of action I went to the local trout lake, and boy was that fish wild when the tasty morsel bit him in the lip and dragged him towards the bank. His antics showed he was really wild.
Also off topic, tried my new (s/h) Sage Pulse, lovely casting rod but pinged a few off, not sure because of stiff rod of my ineptitude.
Better say no more, the thread police are watching...
I'm glad it wasn't just me. I was up in the Elan valley last week and I didn't see a sniff of any fish anywhere. Felt like it was too cold. Glad to hear that I was right.Been out on the vyrnwy and banwy a few times but nothing doing, water very low and cold so have to admit defeat until conditions change, it was the same in the Elan valley 10 days back thought I would give it a go but should have stayed by the logburner lol
Yes, it's a beautiful place S. I rarely see another angler. I think they must fish at the weekends whereas I tend to fish weekdays.When people say reservoirs I always imaging big concrete bowls.
Thats nothing like one Douglas.
