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 […]

Commercialisation of fly fishing, guides and discarded blogs!

I thought I would have a gander around at the state of the UK fly fishing blog scene seeing as how the forerunner of US blogs “The Trout Underground” has now packed it in. It makes me all nostalgic for the past, about all the blogs that I have seen come and go […]

The Ladies? Oh you mean the bottom scum sucking leaches right?

Grayling fishing a few years ago used to be […]

A boat for a hundred bucks and under?

I have been thinking of getting one of these blow up boats for farting around with the kids when I go on holiday. Also I was thinking about the possibility of taking it out on the canal to get to some of those hard to reach spots with the fly rod. I am looking at […]

Fishing Sets?

Do people still buy fishing sets ?

I ask because I have been answering some questions on the forums from new anglers (to the fly anyway) who are needing some advice about what stuff to buy etc and it made me a bit nostalgic.

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 […]
