Fished the Wharfe at Collingham today with Gary Charles and Mick Pogson. The weather was kind and the river level back to normal so it looked promising.

Here's Gary fishing the seam....



And landing a nice Grayling for his efforts.



Mick is more of a deep and purposeful type of angler revelling in bouncing tiny weighted nymphs along the bottom. He took a selection of dace and grayling to his size 20 B/H PTN...





Ruby got in on the act when the Kelly Kettle and sandwiches were brought out at half time on our private island retreat...



As for me? Well, I took some photos, fluffed a load of takes by striking too early (I was still in the dace fishing mode) and fluked a Grayling on a Klink tied by the Charlesmeister.

A grand day out in good company. Very Happy

Thanks for the invite Clive. Another excellent day with the Yorkshire triumvirate.
The weather and the river were superb for the time of year even if the fish weren't so obliging. Mick really does know his stuff even if we do give him hell about his poor double haul of 9'. Laughing
How the hell do you work out that the fish are taking size 20 PTN's??????????
Still I stopped at Wharfedale on the way home and got mysen some 20's and 22's with some 2.3mm beads. I wont let it be said that I don't learn from a lesson. Thanks Mick, you are the better angler but we don't like to admit it since you do it with what amounts to WHIP fishing with a pole!
Same again next week at pool if your up for it, Its actually 9 miles further along the road.
Thanks again and I'm tying as we speak(does age cause memory loss?)
Klinks on 20's and PTN's on 22's.

Hi Folks,

I had a great time, the company and location were fantastic and I'm sure we would of have all done better if we had fished more and chatted less, but I think we all enjoyed ourselves.

I've been having a lot of success with grayling on the size 20 B/H PTN this back end and so I wasn't surpirsed when the Wharfe grayling showed a liking for it but the dace were a nice surprise. I think I was just in the right spot at the right time as I took most of the fish in the space of 40 minutes all in the same few feet of water.

It would be great to meet up again next Friday at pool Gary, and I'll confirm with you later in the week.

Thanks again for a great day Clive and I still owe you 3 for the day ticket.

Cheers

Don't worry about the day ticket mate. It was a pleasure to see you double hauling a whole 6 feet of line out of your tip ring. When that bigger grayling went off on a run I swear I saw dust coming from the line on your reel. Very Happy

Joking aside, I have to say how impressed I am at your nymphing technique. When you think that I was covering ten to fifteen times more water with my cast, mend, drift and swing approach and you were pulling fish after fish out under your rod end, it just shows that technique counts for more than just covering fish.

I have dug out some 20 and 22 nymphs and will be tying a few sparse beadhead PTNs and shrimps in those sizes to try out. It certainly made an impression on me.

Here's to next time. Hopefully by then we shall have had a few frosts and the Grayling will be packed up in shoals. I suspect that they aren't quite ready yet going on Friday's results. Very Happy

Too true. Crying or Very sad

They were the first day tickets I've bought since April. I've been fishing free rivers all season, but I don't want the Cleckuddersfax Mafia to know about those. Wink

Sweeper et al
110 for a day ticket Shock Shock Shock
We Yorkshiremen work too darned hard for our money to be parted with it so easily. Rolling Eyes
I reckon that between the three of us we could fish for the price of the EA license and enjoy a full season of trout, grayling and possibly sea trout not to mention the coarse fish all for FREE.
So If you ever fancy a days fishing for the price of the petrol and a couple of quid for the more expensive beats just ask to join us. Very Happy
Were a friendly if somewhat P*ss taking bunch.

Especially where southerners are concerned. Laughing

Actually, Gary's suggestion isn't bad at all. When you think that two or three of you could share the cost of fuel and the driving it could work out cheaper than fishing darn sarf. You could even get B&B for about 20 each midweek. There used to be a foursome of London golfers who drove up to play near Barnsley and Wakefield every week because the course here offered better value for money, all things considered.

Nice to see you making those southern folk jealous Clive Wink Looks like you had fun - and well done you for getting in there when the river wasn't all over the fields! It seems like stillwater or nothing round our neck of the woods at the moment Sad
