A morning grayling fishing the river tees, with the 14ft drennan acolyte plus

With freezing overnight temperatures and the River Tees fining down after last weeks flood, conditions seemed ideal for a spot of grayling fishing. There's something just awesome about the lady of the stream; they bite in the harshest conditions, fight hard and look stunning. I didn't manage anything massive, but happy to catch a dozen or so nice grayling to slightly over a pound this morning.

The 14ft Drennan Acolyte Plus is a great tool for the job....


  1. Great photo's there James, I do love catching Grayling, the Acolyte is a cracking rod too, I had one and seriously thinking about getting a new one. Well done mate.

    1. Cheers mate. The good thing about grayling is that they feed in the harshest conditions.

      I'd give it all away for a few of your roach though, we just don't get many specimen roach up here in the north east
