The big boys come out to play…


An afternoon session on the Ribnik produced a string of fat grayling for our intrepid party.  First to strike was Gavin Walsh with a handsome fish measuring 48cm.  Next up, Bosnia ace Renate rattled out another 48cm specimen.  Brian Garner hit the jackpot too and what astounded him most was the sheer guts of these fish, which sprinted away more like trout than grayling.  Eventually, my turn came when I stumbled on a pod of large fish averaging 45cm.  Needless to say, all these fell to dry flies with the sparse CdC olive patterns coming up trumps.
