The Grayling Society
Promoting Awareness, Conservation & Angling for Grayling, Worldwide
About the Grayling Society
The Grayling Society was formed in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic game fishermen who wished to conserve and establish the Grayling as a true, wild, game fish. Its core aims have remain unchanged - to promote Awareness, Conservation and Angling for Grayling.
From very modest beginnings in 1977 and a handful of original members, the Society has grown internationally. Currently about a quarter of our members live and fish for Grayling outside the United Kingdom. Membership of the Society provides you with an opportunity to make a direct contribution to the conservation of perhaps the most beautiful of all wild game fish.
In return for your support, the Grayling Society will provide you with a range of benefits - principally aimed at informing you about the Grayling and its habitat - offering advice on conservation and fishing and helping you to keep in touch with other like minded anglers throughout the world.
In addition the Society sets aside funds each year for the Conservation. Applications for these funds is encouraged from interested parties who are carrying out conservation works which will include some benefit to Grayling.

The Society in the UK is divided into areas - see map - each with a secretary and many have an administrative committee. The Central Committee of the Society is also based in the UK.
Annual Symposium & Annual General Meeting
By bringing members from all Areas together on an annual basis at our Symposium and General Meeting, held at a different venue each year in the Autumn, we set about achieving our core aims of Awareness, Conservation and Angling.
Grayling, our magazine and Journal of the Society is published three times each year.
This 64 page full colour glossy mag. is full of interest for all grayling anglers. It contains many exclusive articles, often by well known and respected authors, together with a selection of fine quality pictures and successful fly patterns.
