Backhand compliments..

I am laid up with a rather nasty throat bug.

I was looking through some of the blogs I visit when I came across this post over at Taunted by Waters.

Essentially someone had linked to him and pointed out that he did not do much fishing however his writing was good for a […]

Wild Weather..

Fishing was damn near impossible today – from the road the wind did not seem too bad however the closer I got to the spot it picked up in intensity. The whole area was flooded as well making wading tricky. It would have been no problem without the wind however casting those big horrors was […]

Loop Pike Booster Review

Ok, so it had to happen – I became all tackle tarty and just had to get my hands on a dedicated Pike fly rod – well I got two in fact however this review is dedicated to the fairly new on the market Loop Pike Booster.

Loop says:

If big toothy critters is the […]

Cheer Up Monday – Strictly 18+

The Pike are not eating, it is wet and windy – the trout are like a distant memory….I suppose we have some things to look forward to….

We are gathered here today…

North Country Angler wrote a great post about death and dying – well, not really great – more sombre and well written – you know what I mean!

I mean you have only to look at the recent fishing programmes on terrestrial television to see how it’s not […]

The Suburban Bushwacker Jam – Get Some!!

I think I may be shooting myself in the foot here however the Suburban Bushwacker is running a competition – the prize is some of his Mum’s jam (I love Jam).

You must come up with the best use for an arm tattooed tape measure.

The Suburban Bushwacker Jam Competition

United Clyde Protective Association Ltd

So UCAPA have a new website – and bloody good it is too.

Interesting to note they are doing everything that the River Kelvin Angling Association should be doing – there permit price is now rising to £30 for trout and photographs must be attached. Their Salmon permit is rising to £55.

Should […]

A walk along the Forth n’ Clyde

A short session along the Forth n’ Clyde canal cunningly disguised as a short romantic walk with my wife – I was not kidding anyone, especially not my wife who is now used to me saying things like “hmmmm – we could do this with a buggy in tow” (referring to our new arrival) while […]
