I caught a couple of grayling's in Alaska in 2015 and they do fight like crazy. I think it's because of the big fin. Definitely a fun fish but I think we should spend the money on salmon or maybe concrete for that ditch in Chicago to keep the carp out. Plenty of other things need fixing before we spend the taxes on a plan with low odds of success. I hope it works out but I'm not sure it will. I'd love to fish for them again. A #6 Copper Mepp's spinner works great.
