I've caught quite a few but have not yet killed one to eat.
Worth eating or better left alone?
Cheers

No personal experience, but both the Oxford Companion to Food (Alan Davidson), and Fauna Britannica (Duff Hart-Davis), say excellent.
I hope you're going to register soon BTW

I've never eaten one either but would like to give it a try as I've heard very positive things. Were you fly fishing?

As good as wild brown trout -- more delicate IMO

Tahir your right. Going home soon.
Cheers MClay will take one for the pot in that case. Cook the same way as a brownie?

Never caught or tried grayling - but it's on my wish list.

Trouble is there aren't any in this neck of the woods and I have trouble fishing the water I have got, considering there's so much of it.

Looks like it'll have to be day ticket!

Oh yes Tahir, Girlfriend has a computer. Will probably off line for a wek or two then back. Got to get the job first though.
Deerstalker you probably know this but Ewenny in Bridgend has grayling, so has the Taff and the Rhymney.

I'd be inclined to agree that they are 'orrible
Seriously, they are very bony, and taste a bit muddy but each to their own, I prefer trout or salmon
