Grayling domination

The Grayling domination of the lower Alyn was confirmed on Sunday. An early morning jaunt to the Ithells bridge area resulted in around 30 of the ladies to 2 trout.
In the bright conditions pods of Grayling could be spotted in all the likely areas. You could alsmost walk on them. Apart from the two small trout I didn't conciously see anything other than Grayling. The outcomes of tossing a small beaded ptn and small spider pattern amongst them were mainly small fish throwing themselves at the offerings. Most of the fish were around the 15cm mark, I only captured three fish circa 30cm.
You know what though, this was really dull. If I had put silver paper on the hook I'm sure the small grayling would have snatched it.
I stopped a couple of hundred metres short of the Holt road bridge and called it a day (well, couple of hours anyway).
Looking forward to next Sunday on the Hadden Estate's waters on the Derbyshire Wye. That should be testing...
