Colin,

 

If you want to catch a Grayling, go to Barton Court on the Upper Kennet at Kintbury, nr Hungerford, Berkshire. I have had them there to just over 2lb. I haven't been in a while but a friend went last season at the back end and said that the Grayling numbers were back up.

 

There used to be good numbers of big roach to over 3 back the late 90's to mid 2000's. There are some very good perch too, having been caught to over 4.

Click on the course section.

 

Lower Itchen Fishery.

 

Another place where you will catch Grayling.

Colin,

 

Somewhere else that you can catch a Grayling. The lower Test just above Romsey. It was a few years ago that I went, but there were lots of they. Sweetcorn was the bait. Trout can be a nuisance.

Yes they are. Limited numbers per day and pre-booking. Cost are between £20 - £30 I believe, but all the info is on the websites. Yet get almost exclusive use of the fisheries. When I fished Barton Court I used to quiet often block book for 10.

 

Barton Court - £20.00.

Timsbury Manor - £25.00

Lower Itchen - £25.50.

It'd cost us more than the ticket in juice to get up there though. The three fisheries I mentioned are the only day ticket waters that allow course fishing methods for Grayling on those three rivers.

 

Grayling fishing is very limited down south and pretty much confined to the chalk streams, which obviously cater for high end trout fishing.

Red maggot and sweetcorn, a nice 12 - 15ft light float rod and a smooth centrepin.

Too right, I only use flies. The 'Jolly Green Giant' fly is great for grayling..  Ho, Ho, Ho!    :lol:
