Although big trout may be the focus at the moment, large grayling are not to be ignored. Whilst I prefer to target them in the winter, these summer fish are looking in prime condition:

Lovely fish! We have a few quite decent size ones around these parts this year too.

Well, what can I say that not has been said already? Nice photo of a wonderful grayling! Visited a real hot spot for grayling (back in the 80:ties) and even though I knew already that the place was probably just inhabited by small graylings now I was stunned. The insect life was at it's peak and not a single sign of surface feeding until I located a fly there. Just 5 inchers were to find. The main reason is probably that someone, some years ago, cut down a giant tree that was hanging out over the water in like a 45 degree angle giving shadow and a never ending fall of insects. Sad that things like that can happen but I've seen it too often. It happens even though the law prohibit cutting down trees at the side of any stream here in Sweden. Will look for some hot spots that still might be in their prime.

Kind regards,
