It has been quite a cold spring and early summer, but the temperature is finally rising here in eastern Finland. Yellow beadhead nymph pattern has worked well for weeks, but this morning I finally saw Yellow May Flies hatching and yellow #16 Sparkle Dun pattern was working like a dream.
Largest grayling that I catched was something like 35 centimeters long (about 14 inches). And I had three others that were more than 30 centimeters (12 inches) and few smaller ones as well.
A nice way to start a week.
