John Roberts book Grayling on the fly

In the last 20 years there have been new techniques and methods and a multitude of specialist grayling flies that have enabled more and bigger grayling to be caught more frequently. This book explains why that is and how best to maximise the opportunities for catching grayling on the fly. Whether your preference is the challenge of tiny dry flies, or to fish traditional North Country spiders, or tungsten-beaded bugs, shrimps and bugs close to the riverbed, John Roberts brings the literature of flyfishing for grayling fully up to date.  

If you fish for grayling or intend too, this book is a must! The book also contains a handfull of my patterns, along with a good deal of my grayling fishing photographs. Buy book
