Settled weather had me out on the Upper Dee at Llandderfel near Bala.
Quite a warm day for January, 8 Deg and I spotted a couple of March Browns hatching first thing and I caught my 1st Grayling on the Dry fly, It was not to last and I was soon on a couple of beaded nymphs under a dry fly indicator New Zealand style.
5 more Grayling caught and 2 corkers amongst them. Could not find any shoaling fish again today they were all caught singularly in the usual hot spots.
I removed the Dry indicator and fished the nymphs free drifting and took a brown trout but not a pull from a Grayling.
An enjoyable day on the river but the fish were far from playing the game.
