Canal graffiti!

Really?

The Canal again!!

It started off as a Pike fishing trip to the Kelvin. We were supposed to be going to the river to scout out places to spin for Pike, then at a later date to deadbait for Pike. Then when we had actually worked out where the Pike hung out ……fly fish for them. As it [...]

The Canal

So seeing as how I did not get a chance to go for Grayling today I managed to get down to the canal for a few hours in pursuit of Pike….

I was actually suprised by the number of anglers out at the canal today. We met about …………..5 or 6 guys.One of [...]

The Canal!!

Jeepers. So I headed down to the canal today to have a bash at the Pike. I knew there was plenty of fish in their I just didnt think there was so many. There was massive shoals of Roach……and I seen a several shoals. My spoon was chased by little Perch…….To catch the Pike i [...]

I can still remember my first ever “spinning rod” and fly [...]

A weekend of fishing and children related activities!

Sadly due to the fact my four year old knew there was a soft play around the corner I did not get much of a chance to really enjoy the experience of the Glasgow Angling Centre Open Weekend.

My idea of fun and his are two totally different things. Paul Young [...]

You are correct, I have not been fishing in ages. Have a dream instead…

It has been noted in the comments that there has been a lack of actual fishing over the last month or so. One would think that I have not been fishing with a rod and line at all and that thought would go in fact be correct. The miserable weather, trout on the [...]

Back to the wee burn…
