What Is Happening Grayling Fishing Tips and Hints?
If the UK weather runs true to form then we can expect the usual Autumnal dollop of rain coming in now. Naturally, a lift in water is the result, which tends to see Grayling retreat to slacker flows either deep down, or on the inside of bends.
Although they will not be physically hatching the likes of Caddis Larvae (both Cased and Caseless) will be present, as will Shrimps. All of these of course spend the bulk of their time on the Streambed, which is where Grayling seek them.
Most anglers make the mistake of heading for fast streamy water now, but given increased flows these juicy morsels are often dislodged to be washed downstream, where Grayling pick them off in slower water.
Perhaps the most effective way of combing water is by using one of the short, fixed line methods, generically referred to as “Euro Nymphing”.
The Rio Products Euro Nymph Fly Line has been designed specifically for European style Nymphing techniques, such as “French”, “Czech”, “Polish” and “Spanish” styles.
Experienced anglers often prefer the French / Spanish leader arrangement that involve an extremely long (30ft plus) of level Monofilament.
Given that, a good fallback method is the Polish style of Nymphing. This involves a leader no longer than 9-10ft of 5-6 The Essential Fly Fluorocarbon.
Two to three flies are now arranged only 12 inches apart to provide the required impetus not only to cast (lob) the flies, but to ensure they sink quickly.
