Maxi Grilse

Harry's 61cm maxi grilse (larger version)
We refer to our to-the-limit, 63cm, 6-7lb grilse as the 'maxi grilse'. And for the last week we have been into the thick of them. We are still seeing a few large fish in the 10-15lb range (approx 8-10% of hookups) but the river has seen more grilse and maxi grilse this year than the last couple of years. Maybe it is the water conditions and we are seeing more, or maybe there are more? Who knows. Our incoming guests on friday hooked 56 in their first afternoon session from 1-6pm. Some of them had dinner on that and called it a day!

Here is a pic of one caught by our guest, Harry, on Friday. This one measured in 61cm, but the girth of this beauty definitely puts it into the class of a maxi grilse.
