One Frome session – two grayling bests

Laurence Hanger had the session of a lifetime when he beat his grayling personal best twice.
Armed with simple float fishing tackle and a few pints of maggots, he set his sights on the River Frome.
He only gets the chance to fish the waterway once a year and he made the most of it when he banked quality fish with the best at 3lb and 2lb 8oz.
All his fish were beaten with 4.4lb Drennan mainline, a size 16 hook on to which he threaded a red maggot hookbait.
“I started by walking a mile or so to get to the end of the stretch and then worked my way back, giving every likely-looking spot 15 or 20 minutes and it worked a treat,” said Laurence.
