Looks a tasty piece of water mebu.

I bet that the people who live in the houses overlooking this stretch don't fish!!

How handy would that be - 'How long will the tea be luv' - about 15 minutes - that's fine I should be back by then!

My best of 7 or 8 grayling from the Dove yesterday afternoon. I decided to go just after lunch having not intended fishing over the weekend as I thought conditions would be grim, just shows that sometimes going for it is the right answer! I was on the back of two quite tough sessions and was pleased to catch it right as I was on the verge of a confidence whack. I'd changed my setup a bit to a conventional fly line, two nymphs and an indicator but having pondered it since it was probably more to do with the fish being on the munch.

Noticed some discussion on here about small stream rods the Orvis 6ft superfine carbon being like spaghetti ? well my spaghetti managed this one out from a fast run and under tight tree cover today and on a 3lb tippet I handled it well the other rod is a little cane job for dries

1st day in the Frome since early Oct...
river was carrying a little bit of colour which was a shame as it made it impossible to spot and sight fish the large Grayling the Frome is famous for...
I had a hell of a job avoiding OS browns, didn’t matter what I did, varying water type and ringing the changes in nymph type and colour... I still kept picking up Browns.
eventually I lifted into a huge lump deep in a pool... I didn’t even see it for 10 mins, every time I worked it towards the tail of the pool it would slowly and powerfully move back into the depths...
eventually I got it up to the surface... another bl@@dy brown, I would have put my house on it being a Grayling, the power and slow drives back into the deep just felt like a Grayling..
gutted, the brown was between 3.5-4lb it would have beaten my grayling pb:(
stunning wild fish though.., Where was it in late September when I fished the end of the trout season!
