And I enjoyed it.
Never let it be said that I am a moany bastard who never looks on the bright side of anything, today I spent a good couple of hours in the Glasgow Angling Centre and thoroughly enjoyed my time. Gary Wingate (Game fishing manager or something like that) had asked me if [...]
So I mailed Gary Wingate at the Glasgow Angling Centre about my broken Sage SLT and the answer was “bring it in and we will deal with it for you”
The Glasgow Angling Centre for folk not in the UK and the Americans is this islands biggest fishing shop, it is actually a nice place [...]
Like the boots I look back on all the tents I did not get to use this year either. I love camping and every year I usually get away for a week and the odd weekend with the family. I have all the gear and it feels like a home from home when my huge [...]
From Fish Kelvin:
Thanks to all those that attended on Sunday the 16th. We managed to open up another pool above Balmore Bridge, I look forward to hearing about the first Salmon caught from it. The days have been really productive (we have opened up several pools in the City and Balmore), so we intend [...]
Since no fishing exploits here is a random photo from a whopping 4 years ago (it feels like yesterday) of Alex (pre beard) and Mike (Tamanawis) fishing down the Kelvin on a nice Spring morning. On either side of the river there are paths and this is in one of the major parks in Glasgow [...]
I have had the same pair of walking boots for over ten years. They have seen me through walking when I have been at work, walking to Uni, up and down countless hills and have been on many a fishing trip when waders have not been required. In my mind they still look prefect and [...]
Aye, you know it is Autumn when you get to a burn and some shopping trolleys are emerging on the banks.
I arrived at the burn and quickly set up my wee Tenkara outfit. The burn was at a good height and I fished a few pools without any success. This was weird however I [...]
Jeffrey Priest over at Taunted by Waters was talking about how once an angler gets to a certain age having good access (like a zip) in the front of waders can be handy as you need to go for a pee quickly. Getting to the riverbank, taking off your vest, taking down your waders, opening [...]
The Time – Friday and Saturday
The Venues – A river on the Friday chosen as someone else writes about it on their blog and I mailed them first for a name and then for where to park the bloody car, they must have thought I was a right chancer. On the Saturday we were [...]
It looks as if Orvis have really embraced the old (or should that be new) Kindle generation:
Actually, I am geeky enough to own a Kindle and love it – unfortunately there are not a lot of quality fishing books on it. I kinda [...]
