Grayling fishing, and sewin (sea trout) flies plus tying room.

 Got out this Friday just past, I did take a mate of mine on the river Taff. he had not caught a grayling before or had he done much river fishing, so i spent about half an hour showing him what to look for. that fish would hold and feed, and within 20mins he had caught his first grayling. as you can see he is very happy with it in the photo below,
 Dean with his first grayling,
 Above was the stamp of most of the grayling, it was hard work trying to get you flies down pass the smaller fish.
 When you did manage to get your flies down, you had a better stamp of fish like the one above. about a 11/2lb in weight,.
 The set i was using above, size 12 klinlhammer and below two bugs size 14 and 16. with 1mm tungsten bead heads, this set up on the day did take two and three fish at a time. taking the dry and bugs at the same time,

  1. In broadest terms, flies are categorized as either imitative or attractive. Imitative flies resemble natural food items. Attractive flies trigger instinctive strikes by employing a range of characteristics that do not necessarily mimic prey items. :)
