November 19th saw the club hold it’s 2nd Grayling day with the support of the Grayling Society.
Deborah and Ceiran had refreshments under control as angles arrived at Jubilee Bridge Car Park on a beautiful autumnal morning, cold and clear without a cloud in sight. The river was slightly low and running pretty clear. We couldn’t have chosen a better day.
28 rods registered to fish and after a welcome and introduction from Stuart Wardle of the Grayling Society and a few words from club secretary Shaun O’Dowd they went off to enjoy their days fishing.
Refreshments were available all day, hot drinks being particularly welcome. A spicy butternut squash soup was very welcome along with Trevor’s pies and quiche.
In excess 0f 120 Grayling were accounted for with catch returns showing an even spread across the waters. Anglers making full use of the river available, and of course those who weren’t fishing kept a close eye on proceedings.
At the end of the day we are left looking forward to next year. If you can’t wait that long, Winter Grayling permits , valid up to March 15th are available for just £25, day tickets for £10. Full membership for 2018 is available from march (currently priced at £75).
To all who attended thank you. we hope you had a great day and look forward to seeing you fishing at Willington again very soon.
Haste ye back.
