River Test yields top-quality grayling to 2lb 13oz

A fast and flowing river made floatfishing impossible during Adrian Eves’s latest trip to the River Test but that didn’t stop him landing a series of grayling to 2lb 13oz.

The Fox consultant studied a variety of swims to look for suitable areas to find his target species and decided to pack a small feeder with Dynamite Baits Red Krill groundbait and use red maggots on the hook.

A fish of 2lb 1oz kicked off proceedings with three more over the 2lb-barrier coming to the net before the biggest of the session was landed.

“This fish was just 3oz short of my personal best. I didn’t land as many as I usually do in a session but every single one of them was a quality specimen,”said Adrian.
