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.
