Grayling

#41
Yes the Lower Itchen Fishery is full of grayling, and trout.
But you normally need to wade through 30 grayling of 4-12oz till you get one of 1and a half.

The roach seem harder to find. Few nice chub. Very swim specific. Barbel in the bottom end.

Expensive. I'd rather spend the extra £25 driving onto Wool/Wareham

Quite right about LIF Graham, but that will often give you at least two chances of a pound plusser :D I'm with you on the Frome, a wonderful river, and if I lived a nearby I'd probably fish nowhere else for grayling.

Cracking day on a Welsh river with about 80 grayling with at least half over the lb best probably short of 2lb.

3 spotties best about 3lb. Really enjoyable day.
