A mixed bag…

Mixed results as the season draws to a close. I have had several sessions on my other favourite river, two at the local canal for Pike and one down the Kelvin.

I met Mike down at my other river for a few hours, the river was slightly high and the colour of tea but did [...]

Review:In the Company of Rivers: An Angler’s Stories & Recollections

I love getting sent books by authors; it gives me a warm fuzzy glow inside that someone actually might value what I say about their writings. Writers sending bloggers books to review is quite a new thing and I have got to admit it is a perk I quite like. However I have been dreading [...]

Fly fishing and poems..

What is it about fly fishing that makes people want to write poetry?

Go check out friend Mikes site!

Coming to an end..

So the end of the season is almost upon us, I fished the middle Clyde on Saturday for a few hours – there was plenty of flies on the water but the trout appeared to have other things on their minds.

I am not a big fan of cows; I don’t trust anything which looks as if it could trample you to death. Sure, I am told they are docile but I don’t want to be [...]

When Enough….Is Enough !

Arrived at the river around 0830, there was a nip in the air although an occasional blast of sunshine heated me up nicely as I walked along the river bank. I met another angler ambling along the bank towards me – we exchanged pleasantries – it turns out he was going to fish bait – [...]

31 days of the season left…

31 days left, without looking at my callander that must mean around 4 weekends – or 8 days possible if I don’t take any holidays. Considering I need to spend at least one day with my other half that leaves around 4 possible days left fishing for trout. Depressing isn’t it?

No way did I [...]

Well, if that was the Summer…

If that was the Summer I wonder what the Winter will bring – I am already starting to get geared up for Pike. But more of that laster in the Month.

It is a funny old world when you have high expectations about somewhere and they are dashed. Gareth travelled all the way from Wales [...]
