A host of rivers through­out Eng­land, Scotland and Wales are home to a thriv­ing pop­u­la­tion of grayling. Nat­u­rally, the chalk­streams through­out south­ern coun­ties hold plenty of grayling with the Test, Itchen and Wy­lye be­ing pop­u­lar. Welsh rivers in par­tic­u­lar are fa­mous for grayling, with the Dee and Severn top­ping many grayling an­gler’s lists. Fer­tile and rel­a­tively sta­ble, Der­byshire’s lime­stone rivers have long since been a grayling strong­hold. It is per­haps the Dale’s rivers and streams which hit a chord with many as these sys­tems are where grayling were de­posited fol­low­ing the Ice Age. De­spite their rest­less na­ture, the spate rivers of North­ern Eng­land and Scotland have seen grayling pos­i­tively thrive since their in­tro­duc­tion.
