River Kennet - 28/11/2010

A very cold day on the middle Kennet trying for the Grayling on the fly. Very cold conditions combined with low and clear river made the fishing tricky and by lunch I had only had 4 small Grayling and one of season BT. After a hearty lunch I decided to adopt a more mobile approach to the morning and walk along the river/carriers until I either spotted fish or came to a particularly good looking spot. The approach allowed me to explore the remainder of the fishery (it was my first time here) and was far more successful. The afternoon yielded 10 more Grayling (mostly small) and a couple of large out of season Rainbow Trout which really fought hard in the cold water.
