River Taff Grayling, and more.

Hi, Have not posted for some time, been busy tying. not been fishing as we have been having lots of rain, and the rivers have been flooding or very high conditions. which has spotted me from getting out, but last Monday was ok. but the river Taff was still carrying a bit of water, but a mate Sion gave me a call to give the Taff a go for the grayling. as i said the river was pushing though a far bit, but it was nice to get out for sure.
Above is Sion, with a grayling, not a bad fish to start. and have to say well done to Sion, for getting into the Welsh International river team this year.
Above, i am playing a fish. i have pointed  out the Klink fly just out of the water,
Above is the set up i was using, a well greased up klink hammer. and a a small bug with a 2mm bead at the head underneath the klink,
Above, myself with a small grayling, it was hard work fishing. with not many bigger fish showing,

Above hooked in to another fish, and in my hand showing the set of bugs i was using. hoping to get to the bigger fish on the bottom, the set had a 3mm tungsten bead at the tip and two bugs with 2mm tungsten beads.

And above a few more shots of grayling,
Also fishing the Taff has been my mate Ken Evans, who as been doing very well the last week. above is a spawned out brownie, which when its gets back in to good condition will be pushing about 8lb. its laying on a 30" inch net,
And above, a nice chub of 5lb,
Here is a good surprise, we catch a good few rainbows on the Taff. but they tend to be small 3/4lb to11/2lb, but Ken had this one about 8lb and in super condition.  it has been in the river for some time and grown on,
And at it again, an other chub 53/4lb, and in great condition.
As i said i have been tying a lot, most patterns you have seen me post in the past.  so i have been trying to start tying my own sewin and salmon flies, for the coming season. will not be long now, i have put up some photos of the spey flies i use. plus the ever wanted Toucan tube still in big demand and catching loads of fish,  
Above, a black spey,
And a orange spey,

And a pink spey,
Just love spey flies, and they do catch a lot of fish. i have also had some new fly boxes delivered this week, the one above is in wallnut. will put some photos of the next week, and will be for sale. 
Hope you all had a great Xmas, and saw the new year in fine.
