I was out for a jog this morning and came across this rather brave heron. My route takes me along the canal so it must be fairly used to seeing folk. Usually when I see them and they see me on the Kelvin we are separated by a good hundred yards or so – this [...]
One of the questions that folk ask an awful lot is what weight of fly rod you need to use for the Kelvin.
Look – if a 4 weight is good enough for Lord Kelvin…
Have I got to explain it? Ok – essentially the weight of a rod is irrelevant – it is [...]
That’s it lads – it is now (Monday) 50 days until the start of the trout season. The temps appear to be sitting above freezing now and there is a sun in the sky. In fact today we are getting 8 hours, 6 mins and 28 seconds of daylight.
Conditions are possibly balmy (or [...]
Third week and this time I decided not to wait until the last minute. I am out and about quite a lot visiting clients and every now and then I stop at wee burns to check em’ out for the fishability factor – this is one of them. Usually you cannot see this bit of [...]
Do me a favour and vote on “circle of tyrants” to win a competition to play a gig in a club – it is a simple click no need to register or anything – promise I won’t ask again ….link below
Ta very much!
Good grief – it is week two already (and the end of the week at that) of my weekly water photo.
I thought this photo was pretty apt as the temperature has now risen and has stayed above freezing for a few days now – in fact the other day I got in my car [...]
Honorary Kelvinator Ben has been skulking around in bookshops taking photos of books to send in – he spotted this little gem:

We Need to Talk About Kelvin: What everyday things tell us about the universe – seemingly it is “A hugely accessible and entertaining exploration of the science of [...]
Ok – so I am thinking that last years tenuous fishing photos were all maybe a wee bit abstract for even me to get to grips with – there were so many links that I found it difficult to choose one thing to take a photo of and then post which resulted in a brain [...]
Slagging off the people that are in control of your fishing appears to be in vogue these days (plus I need to try and get together my hosting fees) – so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon in my own, dare I say, capitalistic, style – yes that is correct you can now [...]
Its January, it’s cold and miserable and most of us have not caught a fish all year – it will probably be another few months before we will even see a snout of a trout. Last year the season started badly with freezing temperatures – all the trout were away hibernating or something. Then suddenly [...]
