a dreich afternoon

Today we had an afternoon on the grayling burn, although slightly milder than yesterday the weather was dreich, water clarity looked ok... ish despite the rain so we were hopeful of a grayling or two.
Col got of to the best possible start with a nice grayling on the cdc/elk

i got a trout before spending ages covering a grayling which was rising on the far bank of this pool, i missed him several times on different dries before putting him down, frustrating!

col got in on the act too, missing a couple in this pool!

as the afternoon wore on the water clarity seemed to deteriorate making it pretty much unfishable so we headed home after flogging a few pools, its a tricky wee burn to get just right.
