Fish Kill on the Kelvin!

So I took a wee stoat up to the Vet School today as it looks like the last day fishing for a bit as the rain is about to come. I met a guy from SEPA who asked me if I had seen any dead fish. It just so happened that I had seen two […]

Evening session, could have been worse!

Hiya, so I got a text at around 6pm asking me if I wanted to go for an evening session on another river. It was roasting hot, not a cloud in the sky, no wind and I thought why the hell not. I was supposed to go to the Kelvin commitee meeting but could i […]

River Tummel!!

This River Tummel starts its life 60 miles to the west of Pitlochry on the windswept Rannoch Moor close to Glencoe. It begins as the River Ba and runs east passing through numerous lochs including Loch Ba, Loch Laidon, Loch Eigheach, Loch Rannoch, Dunalastair Water, Loch Tummel and finally Loch Faskally, until it reaches the […]

Blankedo!!

So I had a wee few hours down on the Kelvin today, uttrely blanked! Ran into one of the regulars..

Yeargh, frustrating evening

So I went for a wander along to the Kelvin last night as the rain came to nothing. It was a bit windy but the river was at a good height and there were flies on the water. I knew things was going to be slow as soon as I didn’t catch anything in my […]

Small Stream fun!!

So after giving my new Bamboo rod the once over on the Kelvin I thought I would have a wee bit small stream action. There was not many flies moving on the water but it was overcast with just a little wind so the trout were feeling quite safe My first fish came to hand……..on […]

Damn the Luck!

So the rain has made the Kelvin and its tributaries become coloured. I now have 2 folk to check the condition of the river for me. One of them lives right next to the Kelvin and is clued up enough be able to tell me whether it is high or low or coloured or whatever…….great. […]
