River Kelvin Wish List

I know that my wish list may not be popular with all however please remember this is only my opinion. I would like to hear what others think.

Considering that over 1000 permits have been sold this year I think that the Kelvin as a vulnerable recovering river needs every bit of help to [...]

I Stand in Defiance of the East Wind Curse

Well that was a turn up for the books. I decided to spend a few hours down at the Kelvin before I jet off on my holidays tomorrow. I was expecting things to be hard going however the fishing was pretty good – even better than the last time I was down. It was busy [...]

Spawning Pike

So to try and combat the east wind curse instead of going after trout today I decided to go after Pike on Loch Lomond. To cut a long story short I caught nothing however did manage to watch several Pike spawning amongst the weeds.

This was after I had covered an enormous amount [...]

Under Bridges with DHE

Arrived at the river around 1130 – the day is windy with a few clouds in the sky – when the wind dies down it is warm. The Kelvin has a nice green tinge and is low; there has been no rain for a few days. I wangled a trout using the duo, the trout [...]

Orvis Podcast

So I am going away for a beach holiday next week. I have been strictly informed that the rods will not be accompanying me.

The water was looking brown rather than the classic green Kelvin [...]

Attack Delta Force – ATTACK!

So the first wave was sent forth – first was a tributory of the Kelvin – which proved to be fruitless after a few casts. The company of soldiers was then transported to the Kelvin – first a dry and dropper combination which yielded nothing – and then I seen that which only the riff [...]

Attack Force “Delta Flies”

Look at em’, all standing to attention like soldiers, like a trained fighting force – the elite! Like the SAS – all ready to attack the rivers full force. Just waiting for their orders although in this case it will be an order to land gently possibly several feet away from a rising trout – [...]

To Whom It May Concern:

Dear Sir,

I am writing to complain about the lack of spring time weather we have been experiencing over the last two weeks.

I would have hoped that by now there would be plenty of lambs in the fields, trees starting to bud, the sun on my face and more importantly flies having vigorous sex [...]

No Fishing For Me – Lets Do RSS Instead!

No fishing for me this weekend and probably for none of you guys in Scotland either due to a new little patch of winter kicking its way in.

I thought I would take this opportunity to welcome my new readers and to tell you the few ways you can actually get the content [...]
