Grayling 30th November 2019 River Test

Four Richards and APNCR*


With one of the first frosts greeting us as we stepped out of our houses we arrived at the river in good spirits and full of hope of finding shoals. Conditions down to the river were good and the track was hard with frost. We split up along the bank and were soon into fish. Nymphs were the order of the day. Around noon it warmed up and several of the Richards reported back having taken flies on f-flies and the like. After a nice lunch activity resumed and though harder than in the morning a fair few fish were caught. Some rising fish were still in evidence but nymphs were still the best way to catch fish. We finished the day with well over 50 fish so a good day out.
