The Lady Of The Stream

Thymallus, or Grayling, as it’s more commonly known, is a genus of freshwater fish in the salmon family. They’re distinguished from other species in the family by their larger scales, small mouths and most striking of all, their showy, sail-like dorsal fin. They’re widespread throughout much of Europe and the Arctic and Pacific drainages in Canada, Alaska, and Siberia. They’re one of the most beautiful and respected freshwater fishes in the northern hemisphere.

Inhabiting cool, well-oxygenated water, preferably with a swift current, they are found in large, sandy- or gravel-bottomed rivers and lakes. There generally omnivorous and feed primarily on crustaceans, insects, and zooplankton. They have a life expectancy of up to 18 years.

Grayling tend to shoal, so although they’re not always easy to locate, once you’ve found one, you’ve likely found several, at least for a while.
Even though they don’t grow huge, a fish of 3lb would be classed as a specimen; they are still a popular fish amongst the fly fishing community.
The tendency to ‘corkscrew’ when hooked and fight seemingly forever make them a truly attractive freshwater fly fishing species. Grayling often glide up from considerable depths to intercept food, so a floating fly presented neatly on the surface of the water is one of the most exciting and rewarding ways to catch them.
