Did not know of grayling in the lyne and ive lived near it nearly all my life, there isnt any gudgeon or perch either. The river was a great chub and dace river back in the 70's, 5lb chub common, most of the chub and dace were taken out in the 80's/90's and the river has suffered because of it, there are brown and sea trout with a small run of salmon. as for coarse fish, this stretch may have survived as it was looked after by a coarse angling club, the rest of the lyne is a shadow of its former self as some locals dont like having skellies because they cant eat them and they tought that they ate all the trout, if anybody looks at the rest of the lyne they will find out there isent many trout left either, so messing with nature for the narrow minded trout fans made a big loss for everybody.
