    Many rivers around here have these amazing fish. They don't get too big, 14" - 16" would be large, but they fight like crazy. They also rise to dry flies with reckless abandon. They're an absolute blast on a 3wt rod.

    Figured I'd share how we make a clear ID on them.

    I'm told they're excellent. I don't eat fish though. LOL

    They are in the whitefish family and those pictured are probably 20+ years old. Grayling grow slowly and live a long time. Oh, they really have a strong odor that takes a couple of days to wear off.
