Tying Instructions: Although very bright, the grayling (and trout) in British rivers go wild for this fly. I tie it 14, 12 and 10 hooks.
Mixing the dubbing with white dubbing 'washes' out the colour to produce a paler fly - I tie a range to suit the water colour.
Lead sheeting gives lots of weight, but retaines the slim pattern - once up and down the shank is all that's required.
Presentation Tips: High-sticking, Czech or upstream dead drift - all work - but watch carefully for the subtle takes.
