Trout & Grayling wade fly fishing in the River Annan
A chance to catch a real specimen Trout or Grayling in a priavte stretch of the River Annan
Prime season December to Mid March
The River Annan is one of the finest rivers in Europe with 2lb + fish commonplace and 3lb + specimens every season to our guests’ rods
Background – River Annan
The river Annan is gaining a reputation as a top class grayling fishery, where specimen fish over 2lb are fairly common. 3lb plus fish are regularly caught.
We fish either dry flies in a hatch, or weighted tungsten ‘bugs’ presented on or near the bottom under a form of indicator either cast upstream and slightly across the flow and allowed to drift down or upstream ‘Czech nymph’ style. We can also offer Tenkara style and tuition, a highly effective method, (see video page)
