On the afternoon of 24th February I had a very enjoyable afternoon of Grayling trotting on the River Wharfe at Ilkley.  The river was a touch higher in level than ideal but was running fairly clear.  Over a five hour session I landed six Grayling and five Trout as well as losing a few fish.  Two of the Grayling were around 1lb 8oz and some of the Trout were bigger.
