ANDY Wilson made the most of a long trip north from Leicestershire to target grayling in a Scottish river by landing a fine 3lb 1oz specimen.
The venue was fining down after floods and bites hard to come by, but by staying mobile and spending no more than 20 minutes in each swim, he managed to track the fish down.
Trotting with a 4g Avon float, Andy fed the swims only lightly with a small pinch of maggots on each run down.
After landing several trout and even a 6lb salmon, he finally hooked his prize grayling and after a nerve-racking fight, coaxed the new personal best into the waiting net.
