Grayling fishing

History

Grayling fishing in Scotland has and still is developing into a branch of fly fishing in its own right as opposed to the days when many anglers fished occasionally for grayling during the close season of other game species such as salmon and trout. The river Annan as well as many of the other border rivers is gaining a reputation, not only as a good grayling fishery, but also as a fishery where specimen grayling over 2lb are fairly common with a good chance of catching a 19 inch plus (or 3lb plus) fish which for many anglers is the pinnacle of grayling fishing.

Grayling are not native to the Forth, but they are certainly thriving after their introduction in the late 1800's and despite periods of persecution from anglers and older fishery management practices, the current stocks of fish are very good with regular reports of fish over 3lb as well as the occasional fish of 21 inch plus (or 4lb plus).
