Urban Blogs – tons of em’

There was a time that I felt all alone fishing an urban river – dirty smelly places where no “real” angler would venture (at least that was the impression I was given).

However these days urban fishing appears to be all the rage and everyone wants in on the act – Singlebarbed (no introduction needed)loves [...]

Lookin’ after the missus!

So there were two new mothers who wanted to go the Baby Show at the SECC and there were two new fathers who wanted to go fishing – simple solution – hook up the two mothers to keep company while the two guys go fishing – sometimes I think James Bond will come after me [...]

Tying Flees!

Submit your photo on fishkelvin.com

OK – so the official site is coming along nicely although I have ran out of a bit of steam – Oh sure, I am still plodding away with the \”serious stuff\” however I want you guys to remember that there is a photo gallery over there.

Now – I would like all Kelvininators [...]

Seize the moment!

Seize the moment – when your wife tells you that you can go fishing – Do it!

Sure I caught nothing however at least I was out there – casting and wading. Sunday was a funny day – it was kinda bright with a cold wind. The Kelvin also was a little cold. In [...]
