How To Catch Grayling
Grayling mostly feed on shrimps, nymphs and caddis larvae. Longer lighter rods are the norm when fishing for grayling but beware as they can put in a strong fight when caught! They also tend to corkscrew when hooked as well. The longer lighter rods give you the ability to control the line better and are more comfortable to use during your fly fishing season.
When playing a grayling, keep the rod tip low as this keeps the grayling deep. Play the fish until it’s upstream of you, then as the river brings the fish towards you, raise it in the water column and direct it into the net. Once a grayling fish is near the surface, it may start to thrash about. This is where most fish are lost and where you will need to be careful.
