Fishing Breaks offers a selection of grayling fly fishing in Berkshire and Hampshire
As the trout season draws to a close the completely wild grayling come into their own and autumn days on the river can be very special indeed.
For decades grayling were considered something of a pest and river keepers were instructed to remove them. However, we happily live in more enlightened times where the grayling is rightly regarded as the fourth game fish, for many an equal to the salmon, trout and sea trout.
Despite the winter rains the chalkstreams will generally run clear, perfect for sight fishing with Red Tags, the Grayling Witch, Shrimp patterns and Killer Bugs for the "lady of the river".
Our grayling beats open from October to mid-March.
