The dawn that never was..

Up at 0300 on Saturday morning for a dawn raid on a Pike venue – dawn was scheduled for 0430 however when the guys came to pick me up just before 0400 (by jings early as well) the dawn was already in the sky – by the time we got to the venue it was [...]

Kelvinator Forum Meet and Greet (and fish obviously)

OK – I think it would be pretty neat if some of us could meet up for a wee evening session – we have got to come up with a place – this will obviously be based around numbers, for example if a few folk fancy it then we can meet up in [...]

WTF – the skunk cabbage came back!

So I was planning on hitting the Clyde today however as my car had to return to the garage because of a bizarre squeaking sound (any of my readers mechanics?) I took my beloved wife’s motor and hit the Kelvin.

Things went from bad to worse – the temp seemed to [...]

Shit Pipe River..

Sunday – it had been raining for three days so pretty much knew the Kelvin would be out of action. I considered a few other possibilities and decided the “river of pipes” was a possibility, I called it that as it has an extraordinary number of pipes over it – most if em’ [...]

Robbieredball.net – Netted!

A site run by a fly fishing anarchist intent on exposing what he perceived as being the incompetent running of his local club the Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association has been instructed to close its doors by his web hosts.

The site started simply enough – one mans dream of sharing his passion for a [...]

Wild Weather!

Pouring rain, howling gales, hailstones , snow on the hills – ah yes, the Scottish summer is almost upon us.

It looks set to continue over the next couple of days which means the Kelvin will be messed up for the weekend (probably) – I will be hunting on Sunday for a clearing burn somewhere [...]
