Quest for Winter Grayling

Rae Borras embarks on a wintery quest across the UK in this instalment of Game Fishers Diary, as he visits two of the UK's most prestigious Grayling fisheries, the Welsh Dee and the Dorset Frome, in pursuit of the lady of the stream. This stunning, hardy little fish has overcome a history of persecution in the world of angling, but now stands as one of the most prized catches for fly fisherman worldwide. Rae joins several of the most respected anglers in the country, from lifelong guides Karl Humphries and Tony King, to area secretary of the Grayling Society, Alex Adams. This show offers pro tips in the arts of how to fish nymphs in the colder months, as well as exploring the history and conservation of this beloved species.
