In The Bleak Mid- Winter.

Waters were fining down, a wee stream was just the ticket at 9" on the grid. When we arrived we found clarity good , and we were treated to a hard fost, classic grayling weather. It didnt take long for brian to find the fish, a lovely fish of 1 1/2 lb that took one of his bugs, which one, we don't know as the hook came out in the net.

We fished lots of other pools but had no luck, we even saw a single riser but it did not oblige.

But we kept our chins up, and brian again caught a smashing  grayling of two pound on the dot!

that was our lot for the day, 2 blanks for me on the trot, back to the drawing board for me. lots of frosty days forecast this week hopefully, it'll help shrink the big rivers.
