Event: River Annan Grayling Fishing, Sunday 18th November
The outstanding grayling fishing on all of the Border Rivers has been a long kept secret with the fish often being regarded as vermin until relatively recently. On the Annan this has been recognised for many years now and most of the proprietors sell day, weekly or season tickets to people wanting to pursue this delightful fish.
As the season goes on the fish become fitter and with October, November and early December being the peak months for the fly anglers. The surface fishing will remain good (and the flies fortunately will be a lot larger) but as water temperatures drop deeply fished nymphs will out fish dries.
The day will consist of fishing for grayling using two methods. Long Trotting, using a 12-13ft float rod, fixed spool or centre pin reel, with 3 1/2lb line, using maggots and fly fishing using czech nymphs, bugs, klink hammers and if the weather stays warm there may be a hatch, so we can use dry flies.
Equipment and life vests will be provided for beginners.
Car Sharing is available from County Durham and Newcastle.

If you can’t make this event our next grayling day will be Saturday 8th December on the river Tweed.
