WHERE CAN I FIND GRAYLING?
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.
