What a whopper Howard well done on a fish of a lifetime
(That's the beauty of river angling-you never really know what's in there! )

Stunning fish, I'm sure you're over the moon!

I might venture down to the thames tomorrow as temps look good - the surprise would be if anything took an interest in my hookbait!

As many have said though, that's the reason we love fishing rivers!

I'm a bit of out of touch with the angling press, but is the weekly / monthly Drennan Award still going? If so then a 3.9 grayling would get my vote!

With the weather turning cooler I decided to go for a trotting session on the Dee today. Good sport from 30+ grayling, none huge, but kept the blood pumping, just as well because most of the time I was wading and the water is definitely getting cool!

Been doing a bit of Grayling fishing recently with some success,where i have been fishing the average size is about a pound and there is plenty of them so its great sport !
Now and again i bump into larger fish around the 2 lb mark and maybe even bigger but they always come off,just wondering what type / pattern hook you guys recommend ?
I have been using Drennan micro barb supper spades !
