I got that Friday feeling – thankfully this week it was actually yesterday – today I had a day off – physiotherapy has instructed me to make sure my ankle does not seize up so I scheduled in a walk along the Kelvin valley – the boy accompanied me!
First stop was the entrance into [...]
This is a picture from last Sunday – sewage leaking into the river from an old pipe. This was reported to SEPA last year as well.
This kind of shit makes our rivers stink and drives people away – it is pretty bad for the fish and insect life as well.
I appear to have missed last weeks tenuous fishing photo – so here it is here – if you follow me on Twitter you have probably already seen this however to me it was an important moment – finally after months of freezing temps and many long minutes spent river gazing I finally spotted some [...]

You can see more tenuous fishing photos here
You would have thought I could have been a bit quicker with this post however I not only managed to lose my camera charger I also managed to lose my camera data cable – I found the data cable tonight so managed to transfer some photos .
It might LOOK like Summer [...]
I should really try and get these out earlier than the end of the week – next week (tomorrow or today if you are reading this on Monday) will be the 15th week which should be pretty interesting as the trout season is now under way – I only have one problem – I have [...]
