Butter cup Yellow and the ladies wont leave me alone!!!
This is what happened and my first cast into a likely looking pool produced a OOS Grayling arround a pound...I then moved around areas hitting fish after fish who were willing to hit the JT straggle nymph, the only downside being Grayling, yes its out of season now but the fish dont quite know it yet and are feeding heavy, the Trout on the other hand are not quite switched on and have not moved the Grayling out of the way and seem to be holding in back eddies tight to the banks out of the flow, another few weeks will see both species swap positions. Its very hard to change your fishing spots as all the likely ones still hold Grayling...
I did manage to catch 5 trout, one beautfiul fish in its buttercup yellow, all were taken on a nymph as with heaavy rain there was never going to be a rise...i had too many Grayling really and one was huge but i did not weigh it as it just not feel right now they are OOS, i did not dare guess the weight!!!
I did see quite a few hatches of LDO coming off but nothing to get the fish turned on...
