An afternoon right up the shit pipe!

The weather was for high winds, heavy showers and low temps. Feck all that lets go to the river of shit pipes on Sunday I said to myself on the Saturday as I was starting to feel real withdrawal from fishing. Usually at this time of the year we can choose to not go fishing […]

Shit Pipe River..

Sunday – it had been raining for three days so pretty much knew the Kelvin would be out of action. I considered a few other possibilities and decided the “river of pipes” was a possibility, I called it that as it has an extraordinary number of pipes over it – most if em’ […]

2012 Trout Season – you were like a batshit crazy girlfriend!

That is correct, you were like a crazy girlfriend. On one hand you promised so much (the sex was good) however on the other you turned up at crazy times at my house and made unreasonable demands.

You were like two separate people, the problem was the crazy part far outweighed the good part.

The […]

A walk in the park with a Piper!

So it was a beautiful day for the opening ceremony – we had sunshine, a breeze and even flies at one point (of course we also had strangers asking us for our whiskey and a kid with a dog where we wanted to fish but that’s another story)

Friday Trout Trip – River of Shite!

So finally managed to get some fishing squeezed in amongst the madness of 2nd time fatherhood.

With hindsight maybe I should have chosen a different river, I decided on the Shit Pipe River pretty much because it was far enough away to feel I was on a trip yet close enough […]

2013 Resolutions Required ..I guess!

I suppose I need to write some kind of 2013 resolution post as all the cool kids are doing them these days. So what I should really do is look at last year and what I did poorly and then look at this year and see what I can do better.

Quite frankly I […]

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Three sessions my friends and each one could not have been any more different.

You may have noticed it has been some days since I last posted and those living on this fine wee island will know that due to a lack of hurricanes the Gulf Stream has not been shifted South to give us […]

Weekly water photo – 10 of 52

Passed over my shit pipe river today and it looked great – because all the trees have no leaves I can see lots of riffles and runs! Only a week until I can choose not to fish for trout – I will probably fish for pike first.

Probably.

So I drove past shit pipe river yesterday – it was in full spate. Not long to go now before we can catch a trout! You can see the river between the trees! Questio: when does a burn become a river? At what point does your attitude change?

2 trips for trout..

You would be forgiven with thinking that I have done pretty much no fishing over the last couple of weeks – you would in fact be wrong – I have had two trips after trout – one to my small shit pipe stream and one to the Clyde.

The Shit Pipe Stream was weird – […]
