Itâ€™s now pissing down with rain out there. It has been warm and overcast all day, I suppose threatening it really but I thought like yesterday it would not come to anything. I was supposed to be fishing the River Gryffe and was going to get the train but my better half decided to give [...]
So I went camping with my sister, brother in law and my better half to the Lake District. For some bizzare reason I did not throw a rod into the back of the car thinking that I would not be able to get any fishing done, how annoyed then was I when we camped here [...]
So I went along to one of the Kelvin tributaries for a little evening session, after that heavy rain it was up around a foot and a little dirty. There was fish rising so I knew it was worth a bash.. I was using my little Tea Stick rod which is absolutley perfect for this [...]
