Grayling Fishing on the River Wear.


November 20th is our Grayling taster day.

The idea behind the day is to get anglers interested in Grayling Fishing and to determine the levels of grayling present in our waters. The event will be attended by Stuart Wardle an England international Fly angler and Guide and Regional secretary for the Grayling Society who 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.
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 to be given as a prize on the day.
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.

Of course this is an event totally reliant on the river levels, can you please contact Shaun O’Dowd in the event of high water levels for clarification on whether the event is to go ahead.
