Jack Hargreaves on Grayling

Post by Mark »

I have just set up a forum for grayling and who better to start it off than Jack Hargreaves, a lovely episode this one.

Jack Hargreaves, a great inspiration to me as a boy and beautiful Grayling, my favourite fish.

Thanks for that. :Hat:

There is a quite brilliant section in "Fishing for a Year" by Jack who explains why Grayling shoal, why they sit much lower in the water than trout and why they twist when rising and miss a lot of flies when they rise.

There is also another Jack "OUT of TOWN" programme on Grayling when he fishes the Kennet - again he explains the nature of the Grayling rise.
