The Club has arranged a Grayling taster day which will take place on the 20th November 2106 on club waters at Willington.
The idea behind the day is to get anglers interested in Grayling Fishing and to try and determine the levels of grayling present in our waters. The event will also be attended by Stuart Wardle who is a an England international Fly angler and Guide as well as the Regional secretary for the Grayling Society and has a wealth of knowledge in relation to this beautiful fish and the techniques required, also in attendance will be members of the Grayling Society, who will be able to advise members on techniques and tackle to tackle these fantastic fish.
In addition Stuart will have some gear on hand to allow members to get a greater insight into the methods and have a hands on approach to Grayling fishing so please come dressed to fish.
The agenda for the day will be :
Meet at Jubilee Bridge carpark Grid Reference NZ 20859 34407, Nearest postcode DL15 0DJ. For approximately 10am with a view to commence fishing from 11am. Stuart and the members of the Grayling Society will be on hand to answer any questions relating to tackle and techniques.
We are also aiming to have tea and coffee available for those that attend and everything to plan there will be soup available.The day is aimed at all angling abilities with enjoyment the key aim. For those anglers that want to fish we will be aiming to collect some data in relation to fish sizes, numbers and spread.
As a little taster we have also had a Rio Euro Nymph Fly-line donated to the event by Sandra at Jubilee Lakes/ Anglers Lodge, this will either be given as a prize for the largest fish or we could hold a raffle on the day with the line as a prize.
For those of you that are interested in attending if you could let the secretary know at the earliest opportunity to ensure that there are sufficient refreshments available.
As this is an event totally reliant on the river levels, can you please contact Shaun O’Dowdin the event of high water levels for clarification on whether the event is to go ahead.
