River Tummel Grayling

Four of us headed to Pitlochry to fish the Tummel for grayling.  It was the first time I had fished here, so today was as much about finding my feet as anything.  It was the coldest day of the winter so far, with temperatures of minus 1 when we arrived.  They never went up by much throughout the day....

Putting out a line below the A9 road bridge.

One poor fellow that never made it to the redds.  There were lots of fish showing all over the river.

A trout was landed shortly before this photo was taken, but alas no grayling here.

After lunch the weather deteriorated with a cold, thick fog descending on the river.  I was trotting and at times actually losing sight of the float.  I did catch an out-of-season brownie of about 1lbs just up from the hut on a trotted maggot.

Cold, cold, cold.

Catch of the day went to Neil, who managed a personal best grayling of 2lbs on a czech nymph thingy.  We all had brownies.
