Flyfishing Guerilla - Jumping Grayling at Mur-River
I can clearly remember my first Austrian grayling years ago. Not because it was tremendously big - it was a descent pretty fish, very colourfull and quite bright (which is quite normal for Alpine Graylings) but I can remember it because it did something that really made me going nuts for it - it jumped, several times. And I am not talking about tailwalking fishes - out of the water, the higher the better! And the reason is quite simple...
(MUR GRAYLING WITH A MILLION DOLLAR SMILE - ALWAYS PLAY FAIR C &F)
Some people say that a grayling is water´s gracile lady, and I kind of agree upon this nickname. Bitchy + naive ("this bird is not going to eat me...so I´ll stay right here" - Nr.1 Cause of death in europe)+ handsome + reserved = Woman (I know some of you would like to chop my dick off for this scentence) In comparison to a trout, that can be big and mean - a real predator, grayling looks like a sissy - sometimes a pretty shy sissy.
Mur River, located in Austria, partically inverts this image and turns it into the very diffrent. Mur Grayling are kicking ass big time! Ambitious fighters are waiting to kill topwater. Once they nailed your fly right away from the surface be prepared for at least 2 or 3 jumps - they will reward you not only with pleasure to see some of the most tremendous Fin-Art-Tattoos but also with a friendly smile...If grayling´s nickname is lady, a Mur-Grayling would be a freaking hot latina. What brings me to another point: Beating up a girl ain´t a real man´s game. Fair Play: Barbless + Catch&Release
