Best methods / flies for grilse

As its comming to that time of year when the grilse will make an apperance in my local river and many others (water permitting) I was wondering what flies and methods you use to attract these fish. I have never caught very many grilse as they just seem to get their heads down and run very hard through the water that I fish only stopping in the odd place for a quick rest before continuing up river. I am sure that the fish that i have had on this stretch have been running and not resting, I have only had sucess on small flies fished high in the water and quite quickly. As well as giving me advice could you also do a rain dance as its too hot here and the river is too low for the salmon to run. Cheers.
