QM1s are snecked and it might be better to 'straighten' them to removed the sneck for grayling.

In general, when grayling are hooked and lost it's because they taken have the bait by coming sideways at it and are so hooked in side of the mouth which is the soft bit.

It pay to fish off the bottom so the fish has to rise at the bait and then you tend to hook it (firmly) in the top of the mouth. By the same token, strike upwards, no sideways and use a floating line. This is from Reg Righyni's great book (p68/69) and my experience is that this works and you loose a lot fewer fish.
