Bought a Whip!

Kids and the Kelvin – its lookin’ Grrrrrrrrrrreat!

I thought I would check in to see how the Kids and the Kelvin project is doing over at there site.

Before my [...]

Decision: Pike or Trout?

So I had one evening to go fishing and consequently a decision to make – would it be Pike or Trout?

It was the conditions that made me wonder – you see I pretty much can only get out after 7pm once the boys are put to bed which pretty drastically cuts down on fishing [...]

On the Kelvin just now…

Having a go for salmon!
