Frozen Rod Rings & One Weighty Lady
Today was a tough one. With temperatures plummeting yesterday we knew the grayling may not have acclimatised just yet and, as such, today would be a little tricky. Add to that the fact that they’re still pretty shoaled up and, well…we were right.
Shoals apart, and with temperatures failing to rise above 0°C all day, we did the leg work and managed a few grayling each, all around the 3/4lb mark, however, the end of the day brought a rather welcome surprise for Liam (aka – The Tenkara Guru). The surprise, a 2.5lb grayling.
A bloody cold day, but made the warmer thanks to the stove, fresh bacon sarnies for breakfast and curry for lunch, and a great final fish.
