Anglers Book of the Clyde on Ebay

Mind that book I told you about the other day? The one that nobody knows much about written by someone who nobody really knows?

Well, even though Amazon have totally sold out there are around 10 copies for sale on Ebay.

It was on my doorstep all along!

So I have been tying up some flees in preparation for some hot evening action. Reluctantly I took the advice (you can substitute advice for pretty much constant ribbing) from pals regarding the size of my flies. You see in the past I fished a place where a big bushy fly was a essential as [...]

Anglers Book of the Clyde?

Well this book snuck up on Clyde fishers everywhere – it seems to have slipped on the scene without any kind of fanfair at all – I suppose it is a fly tying book so does not get the same treatment as say….Harry Potter but still #grin#

A month off work – so why no fishing?

So I have two weeks “paternity leave” and two weeks “annual leave” – of course before number two child was born I was sneakily thinking about fishing opportunities however the best laid plans are always totally blasted out the water by sleep deprivation and a doubling of family duties.

It has [...]

Thanking you guys!

A quick thanks to everyone who has sent me congratulations via the comments or email – I have hardly had a chance to get on the computer never mind make a post or join in the forum banter.

I had this dream that I may manage a few days off trout fishing while I am [...]
