Beautiful fish and photos!! Great care taken while handling them as well!

Thanks for sharing! What type of flies are you using for the grayling at this time of year?
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Beautiful Roberto.  Thanks!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Hello Todd.    For  grayling I often use, for dry flies,  "c.d.c" (cul de canard) emerger like "F-fly" in small size #16, 18 and also 20.  Usually with a slim body in gray or olive colour, and small torax of squirrel or hare dubbing.  Also traditional fly like "red tag" or ant are good, always in small size. During hatch of small mayflies or buzzer it becomes important "to match the hatch" with artificial reasonably similar to the insects of the moment.  For nymph i usually employ pheasant tail nymphs, with or without bead, always in small size. Also some imitations of "gammarus" or "hydropsiche" (like traditional czeck nymph) work well. Sometimes it's very effective to use very bright flies, for example with pearlescent body.   I think that flyfishing "Blu-fin" grayling (thymallus thymallus) is very different from danubian-grayling or arctic-grayiling .... Usually the blue one loves small flies and very very natural presentation of the fly, the danubians which i fished were most similary to the trout behavior,  .... sometimes aggressive and impetuous on the fly.

As soon as possible i'll post some images of my flies ...

Great looking fish. One day I hope to challenge myself to a Marble Trout. A friend of mine from Italy, Giorgio Brizzone lives in Genava and is an avid fly angler. He like yourself shares alot of the Italian style fishing ideaology and techniques with me. It is always great to have wonderful friends around the world that we can share a common passion with. Thank you for sharing these photos.
