    Default where are they?

    Ive never caught a grayling and living in the birmingham(somebody has to) im pretty sure ive got some travelling to do to find some,where do you think the closest place i have a chance of catching them on the float ?...ive heard the upper severn by shrewsbury has a few but is there anywhere else i can try for them with a 70mile radius of birmingham?

    I think the upper Severn on the BAA book is your best bet. The area around Welshpool is a good bet if memory serves.

    The other place to try is the Dee around Llangollen, but that might be just outside your target radius.

    Neil, the upper and middle Teme would be one of closest rivers to you with grayling in, take look on here:

    Search out clean chalk streams and you will find grayling. Chalk streams my not however be in abundance around Brum

    They certainly arent in abundance in brum terry! sean-i will take a look at the baa-im going to get a season ticket anyway in the new year so can shoot up to welshpool no probs ,as for the teme -ive fished it quite a few times around knightwick and bransford and . I know parts of the teme have been so dry this year that they have dried up completely and the e.a have had to rescue fish that were cut off,not sure where exactly though.

    cheers for the info chaps

    p.s-when would be a good time to fish for them?...are they more prolific in the winter months?

    cheers

    River Kennett is a good bet

    Maybe someone will get the Itchen fish-in organised, then some of us "Northerners" can have a go at this Grayling fishing

    Northerners are quite well served for grayling fishing, thank you very much.

    Neil, bang on your seventy mile radius, if all else fails then nip up to sheffield town centre, loads in the river Don thereabouts.Easy peasy too.
