Winter Grayling Social Countdown…

For almost six months, I have been looking forward to the above event with glee, and finally seems to be only a couple of days until it is set to take place!

The event (hosted by Bill ‘The Nymphing Master’) will span the whole of this coming weekend, will include three full days of fishing for grayling throughout the Wye catchment, and two nights of drinking into the early hours of each morning rambling something or other about fishing, flies, rods… socialising with fellow like-minded anglers. Thankfully for this social, I won’t be camping, although I must admit that the thought of camping at this time of year does appeal to me slightly (however, I am writing this sat on a nice warm chair with a nice hot cup of tea, and not curled up in a sleeping bag wearing more fleece layers that a mountain guide).

The weather is starting to worry me slightly, but I have faith. We’ve had little (if any) rain over the last four weeks, however, it has simply poured down since the weekend. I suppose the weather forecasters are known to be wrong almost 99% of the time, so why should they be right about this weekend?

We have a nice warm bunkhouse, central hearing and hot showers, a communal kitchen, and what is shaping up to be a fairly respectable ‘mountain’ of alcohol. If it rains and the fishing is bad, the beer will still need to be drunk.

Stay tuned for a huge report, and a multitude of photos. I’m excited! You should be too!
