Wow, what a great photo, definitely one you will want to keep! Congrats on landing some really nice sized Grayling! I still like fishing for them on top, expecially in clear water where you can see them ripping up to the surface to intercept your fly.

once on a fishing trip, I sat quietly in the bushes and watched as the grayling leaps from the water and tries to catch insects... later I caught him and let him go...
