Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association Commitee Resign

Well, here is a bit of juicy info that seemed to pass me by. It seems the entire Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association Committee has resigned due to accusations of mismanagement of finances and mistrust by the members around the way they are running things. One resignation letter points directly at a forum set […]

Happy Winterfest, Christmas etc

Santa Claus, Christmas Eve – thoroughly pissed off!!

The wife refused to have sex with him before he left for work, those bloody elves are demanding more money as usual for hardly even a days hard graft (for the love of God they want four breaks a day) and to top it all […]

Turning Corners..

That’s it lads – we are almost there! The winter solstice is upon us and from now on the days will be fair old drawing in. I think this is a special time for the dedicated trout angler as it signifies a turning point in the long dreary winter – a faint glimmer of […]

Five things I can’t do without

None essential items used in the catching of fish that I do not actually need but still require:

Lypsyl – ever since I was around 15 years old I used to get cracked chapped lips in the cold or heat. I then started to use lypsyl to keep them moist and…well….un cracked. This has […]

An awesome post !

So […]

I reckon a new 8 foot 4 weight is on the cards…

I have decided I need a new 8 foot 4 weight for next season – as much as I like my current Greys 4/5 weight, it being a two piece does my head in. Additionally it is always nice getting a new piece of kit. Seeing as how the old sponsorship deals are not […]

Good Vibrations

Vibrations – that what I need in coloured water to attract those Pike. You see, they have a long lateral line to detect the slightest vibration and once located the prey doesn’t stand a chance. The dorsal fin works in conjunction with the ventral and tail fins to provide the incredible acceleration we love […]

Live around Glasgow – Demo in Milngavie

If you have never been to a demo let me tell you a little story – my first tying demo was a few years ago now and was Charles Jardine – I can honestly say my fly fishing knowledge not only increased because of the talk but also because of the people I met that […]

Urban Flyfisher in the blogosphere…

On one hand I break things and in the other I get praised.

At least I am consistant……no wait that’s not correct…
