Grayling on the Wye

the upper wye

the upper wye

Really cold here at the moment just like everywhere else in the Uk

Spending a lot of time talking to the tackle trade about italiafishing

In particular a lot of interest in the Sagitar Pole rig line and the cromium feeder line which is great on the match fishing side of things

I intend to try and get the match reels equally well appreciated,they really are nice and I am going to push them on Match fishing to get the known in the market

The MTC 3000/5000 range  with 10b/b is gaining a little following with its wide spool allowing finger control while the Pride 4010 has 10 bearings as well but has a folding handle,a feature match anglers seem to like as they can pack away assembled rods faster into tackle bags allowing quicker set up times.

Anyway I manged a session on the grayling just before the cold weather cam e in on the upper wye,courtesy of the usk and wye foundation

I fished a beat called Ty-Nweydd on a very cold but clear autumn day

The best method seemed to be using 2 small gold heads on a very long leader with hardly any fly line out at all

By wading upstream I was able to drop the flys ahead of me and it was amazing how often the fish seemed to take only feet away from me.

Give the grayling a go,a lovely fish to catch

I also hope to push into other areas I know well


Bass fishing is a particular passion

Unfortunatly I sometimes have to live my passion through others as I dont live by the coast


Have a look at this for some great rock fishing,even a mention of my Alcedo Pro spinning reel which seems to be quite a hit


Fishing for wrasse seems to be the thing at this time of year on soft plastics

this involves droping the lure onto the fishes head from above allowing a good presentation without snagging up all the time on the rocks


Looks great fun
