The Welsh Dee has for a number of years been recognised as the mecca of Grayling fishing amongst the UK and European Grayling fishing fraternity. Over the years CADAC waters have been the venue for several high profile events and they are the new home of the prestigious Hanak European Grayling Festival.
Grayling provide our members with a wealth of variety of sport and successful methods include Czech and French Nymphing tactics, the Duo and Trio methods and there are times when fishing the Dry Fly is an extremely successful method. Trotting with a worm during the winter months is also very popular with our members.

Fish of 2lbs are common and there are several specimens in excess of this. Successful fly patterns are similar to those used on most Grayling rivers and we have included some photos below of proven 'tried and tested' examples below.
