Grayling weekend

Well just returned from a fantastic Grayling weekend on the river Dee in North Wales. The pic shows John Emerson doing a fly tying demo without a vice!!!! Don't ASK !!!
To everybody on the course yes he did find it after the weekend!!!
Two days of good fishing on the Maelor beats. We fished the golf course on day one and concentrated on CZ nymphing with indicator cast and the French leader. The best catch of the day was shared between myself and Rob. He did try and push me in after I handed him the rod with the fish on the end of the line. I was taking pictures of Kenny up river of Rob and trying to explain to him how to track the nymphs down river but he could not quite master it so I took the rod and showed him only for a nice grayling to take the fly where he had been fishing for a while!!! Kenny could not stop laughing while the air above Robs head turned BLUE!!!!
The next day we fished DoleIsha and concentrated on fishing the braid as well as river craft. All in all a very successful weekend so much so that we have arranged another date 15-16th January. If you are interested in joining both John and myself drop me an email.

  1. Glad he found his vice Hywel. Its a bummer when you lose something which is worth more than its physical value ( you know what I mean).
    Still grinning about the shared fish: good times!
