This afternoon I went down to the Chena river and tried my hand at some more grayling fishing. I used my favorite fly for grayling (a bead-head Brassie) and caught about a dozen in the course of a few hours. I also tried a caddis dry, but I only caught one with that.
I was very surprised considering it was a sweltering 85 degrees today.

Sorry, but since it was catch and release only for grayling I did not get any photos.
