GRAYLING are reliable feeders even in the coldest weather and Adrian Eves warmed himself up on Hampshire’s River Test with this 3 lb 1 oz stunner.

The new personal best came first cast as Adrian revealed: ‘It was encouraging start to a cold raw day. It didn’t seem to worry the fish and the action was steady throughout the day, I went on to catch two of 1 lb 15 oz plus five more over 2 lb to 2 lb 10 oz.’

The Farnham, Surrey angler long trotted either Dynamite strawberry corn or flavoured maggot using a Fox 14 ft FX waggler rod.
