The trout season is over –that was a bit quick – I feel I have only been out a half dozen times (obviously a bit more) and I certainly have not fished a lot of my usual haunts on the Clyde. It was fun sticking closer to home – The Kelvin and the other wee rivers that I found. One of the reasons I decided to give up being an office bearer for the Kelvin (note: one of the reasons) is that I found myself attending meetings on evenings where I could actually be fishing – with the young one my fishing time is now precious.
I have been reading a few books over the last month or so and these have been whetting my appetite for next year when with a bit of luck things may be slightly less chaotic – I still have to attack the Pike this year – possibly this weekend I will be armed and dangerous going after the beasts.
How do you guys with kids manage your fishing/wanting to be with your child/family commitments ? I know one fishing buddy who takes his 8 month old in a special rucksack - I fall over waaaaay too much for those kind of shenanigans.
