YOU OFTEN GET A SECOND CHANCE
If you experience a missed chance to dry fly, Spiders, or nymphs, so long as no resistance was felt on your line (which means the fish sensed something) then grayling can be extremely obliging by coming to your fly again and again. I well remember an incident on the River Unec in Slovenia some years ago now when I was sight fishing to grayling using a Shrimp pattern. The fish I was after moved to eat my fly and slow out of the blocks, I missed the take. Believing it had earned its freedom due to my botched strike, the second time round I decided to merely observe what happened. The very same grayling attempted to eat my fly no less than six times. Proof that in many cases we can often get a second and sometimes third chance at grayling!
