Grayling, grayling, and more grayling...
Planning a backpacking trip into the Uinta Mountains this summer (if and when the snow melts) to chase some Arctic Grayling. I will be taking my 10 yr old son along for his first backpacking trip. He is not very handy with a fly rod yet (still in training) so I plan on rigging him up with a fly and a bubble method to get him into some fish. What flies would be good to start him off with? Last time I caught grayling I was using dry flies (ie: skeeters, royal coachman etc...) with a floating line and I was knocking them dead. With a fly and a bubble it is a little different presentation than a fly rod, yes I will have a fly rod with me as well.Cool

I always catch them on nymphs, with an Occasional Renegade.

Good luck to both of you on your planned outing. Bet he'll remember the day for the rest of his life.

Thanks I would hope so. My wife and daughter are also thinking of getting into the fray. I figure if all goes well with my son then I can start outfitting them and take them out. My wife is already looking at packs. Cool

As far as the Uinta's, never underestimate "Ants" They are a give me there.
