What a stonking days fishing today! There is evidence that fishing during new moon and full moon cycles (even during the day) can be more productive than other times. Well I've got to tell you I believe it!
There was a full moon last night and the fishing today was amazing. Granted it was a slow start but at lunch time the fish started a feeding frenzy.
as usual I had the river to myself and In less than 3 hours I caught at least 15 grayling, I lost count after that. Most of these were smaller fish around 250mm, one measured over 300mm and the biggest was a monster (I couldn't get the whole fish in the photo)!
A fantastic day's sport and one I'll remember for a long time.
