Tummel – Bank Holiday Monday

A couple of weeks ago I hit the River Tummel. It was a hot bright day which was good for the in laws as they dropped me off at the river however not so good for my arms which got burnt. An interesting day as I caught a few trout and a couple of [...]

A repost…

For some reason the last few posts have become mixed up – I will summarize the last one here and rewrite the giant hogweed post – all the comments have been lost unfortunately

Kelvin Wednesday

Warm and muggy – I managed a few hours on the river. Driving there was hell, I seemed [...]

Viewing in IE?

For some reason the blog is messed up in internet explorer – I have deleted the posts for just now and will try and work out what the problem is later.The problem is not present with people who use firefox.

Fish Bum Mongolia DVD winner

Ok OK – I promise this was not a fix – the winner of the Fish Bum Mongolia DVD was in fact my long time fishing buddy (now moved away and riverless) Emanuele. Ironically he did not even send in the photo, his pal from the states took the time to send me these pics [...]

Purchased one of these recently. I’ve had six sea trout with it, but no [...]

Hey You Guys…

Greetings readers, I have decided you all know me too well. Someone actually recognised me in Ikea last night. I have decided that it would be nice if I knew what you all look like. Consequently, I want you all to look out a photo of yourselves (preferably with a fish or fishing) and send [...]

Various flies n’ insects

One of the things I love best about fishing is looking at flies – they look so interesting – here is a small gallery, and a snail thrown in for good measure.
