Providing great sport, especially over-winter during closed season for trout the Grayling can be both challenging and rewarding for the fly fisherman
Dry Fly Fishing
Dry fly fishing for grayling is fantastic fun ,however the availability of insects and the attitude of the fish towards surface feeding always dictate the flies to use for Grayling. If Grayling are not rising do not expect them to come to the surface ....they simply will not. Choosing a dry fly is not difficult if there are naturals simply match the hatch, however flies that are really good for grayling include the Red Tag and Klinkhammer's and Black Magic in all their colours to match the hatching insects. Klinkhammers represent an emerging insect rather than a dun and it is successful for Grayling.
Wet Fly Fishing
Wet fly fishing with a team of three traditional flies, patterns such as Greenwells, Snipe and Purple, Partridge and Orange, Blue Dun, Red Tag, Hares Ear or Wickhams Fancy, worked across and downstream is often a sucessful way to search the water. These patterns are of course mainly suitable for use in the autumn when grayling fly fishing is at its height.
