|As discussed last month the bulk of our Grayling fishing involves the use of heavy bugs to scour the streambed. This of course rings true when high water levels prevail following heavy rain. That said there’ll be periods of high pressure systems when cold and dry conditions dominate our weather. |
With little rainfall now, river levels will drop away and given reduced flows, Grayling will be happy to return to the surface in search of food. Aside from the odd Large Dark Olive seen fluttering about, these days our rivers contain a decent midge population. This is due to sediment run off that gathers where flows fall slack, which is the perfect nursery for Midge. Bear in mind, midges continue to emerge right through winter, even on the coldest of days.
