OMBRÉ of the river Dove!

Ombré known by the French anglers for grayling meaning 'shadow' 
My Dove record graced my net earlier this week, a 49cm 3lb plus fish taken on a stripped quill F fly..
The love for these fish is becoming part of me..
Living the dream


  1. Cracking grayling Glen, looks a beast, well done.

  2. Now that really is living the dream Glen! Very well done on your PB for the Dove.


  3. Excellent! Well done Glen. We have graylings of that size also in Sweden but they are rare!

  4. Did you weigh it Glen?

  5. Great fish mate, welcome to the 3lb club!!!

  6. Thanks for the comments, for the time and effort that i put in these days are what its all about for me so thankyou..
    Warren, yes i did weigh it, it took my samson scales down to 3.8lb with the net...the net weighs around 7,8 0z when wet so without being spot on it was just over the 3lb mark..
    For some reason the 48/49 cm fish have absoutely pilled weight on compared to last year, i caught ones last year of 51 cm that were 2.12 so hopefully i can catch one of these again..
    nice one

  7. Westchester Fishing Charters : This rule is true with all types of fishing and is a great fishing tip for rivers. Although you should have two or three techniques available (such as throwing a small spinner, plug, or fly below an invisible bubble) you should also have a "go to" technique that you are very familiar with. My "go to" technique has always been drift fishing a live worm. When it comes to fishing in rivers, especially small rivers while wading, make sure that you are proficient with at least one "go to" technique.
