El Conio The Magnificent

What do you get if you cross some first year art school students with some litter and a traffic cone?

You get “El Conio The Magnificent” an explanation of how traffic cones end up in the River Kelvin.

This is a three part post – today the setup and later all going well will be the reveal – I will then give you a bit of time to think before I act. This will be a hard task my friends – I do not want to say at this stage what it is [...]

I am currently wondering if the temperature is going to rise and give us a good start to the season. The first fly we should all be looking out for are “Large Dark Olives” – an absolutely lovely wee [...]
