Dropped the GF and nipper off at Meadow Hell today and had a couple of hours Grayling fishing on the River Don near Sheffield city centre. Lovely day, had seven up to the pound mark and lost a good Chubb, all taken on a size 12 red Sawyers Killer Bug.
Cheers Dave

yep there some excellent free spots in centre and some huge browns up hillsborough end.If you can get to fish right in the centre you'll have a good chance of salmon now as there running up more and more each year.There seen regular jumping the weir in centre just down from the Old courts end .If you ever go into bennetts of sheffield speak to a chap called Tom.Advid fly fisher and has waded and fished most of the don from Meadow hell upwards to booths by moors.It runs 2 mins away from me house Thurlstone with plenty of free stretches around this area two.Haven't fished centre for a while be keen to get back into some great sport there..

Yes great news about the Salmon....Not bad for a river that was amongst the most polluted in Europe not so long a go....The worst thing about it is the a***holes who keep fly tipping, especially up Hillsborough end, can't understand it when there's free council tips.
