    Default The trout season is dead.....Long live the Grayling

    So now that the trout season is over for another year my mind moves towards the lady of the stream. To be honest, I haven't done a lot of Grayling fishing of late so need to pursue my favourite hobby of stocking up with lots of suitable flies Give me a clue..............what patterns would you buy?...........................bn

    Fair point...............just the time at the moment. I used to spend hours dressing flies. I'll be back to it after Christmas when I shall be free of the work monkey and have the necessary time to enjoy. For the moment though I need to stock up PDQ. Any recommended patterns would be a help. As I said I am a little out of touch with new developments in the Grayling world.......bn

    Birdsnest, if you don't mind me asking, I see you're based in the midlands. Where do go to fish for grayling?

    I've never had caught one, but I'm hoping to fix that this season.

    Cheers

    The good old trout favourites still work and are equally as effective for grayling







    However the orange tag remains my favourite grayling nymph but still catches some very good trout



    There are very few pink or bright flies in my box the above is about close as it gets

    Don't neglect dry flies either; a Parachute Adams and a Tups should cover the upwinged flies likely to be hatching in Autumn, and it's worth carrying an attractor pattern like a Red Tag or Terry's Terror as well.

    If BN's target rivers see a fair amount of angling pressure then go easy on pink nymphs. There's empirical evidence on the chalkstreams that the effectiveness of lurid all-pink patterns is tailing off. A subtle hint of pink in a collar or tag is worth having, however.
